Teen involved in Urbana High School fight pleads guilty to mob action

URBANA — Another teenager charged in a fight six weeks ago Urbana High School that forced classes to be dismissed early has admitted to mob action.

The 16-year-old pleaded guilty Thursday before Judge Heidi Ladd, who set sentencing for May 21.

The teen could get probation or one to three years in juvenile prison.

Ladd earlier allowed the teen to be on home confinement because of medical issues that require him to go to a doctor in Peoria.

In total, eight students were charged in the Feb. 4 brawl that prosecutors say was between two rival groups.

It led to officials putting a plainclothes police officer on campus for the rest of this school year.
