Ohio Teen Sentenced to Residential Treatment Center
The 14-year-old troubled teen accused of causing an accident on U.S. 33 that killed one person will spend one year in a residential treatment center.
Juvenile Judge Steven Williams declared Charles Shoemaker, 14, of Lancaster incompetent to stand trial Friday. The ruling came following the results of two psychological evaluations.
Shoemaker will be transferred from the Multi-County Juvenile Detention Center in Lancaster to Safe Haven, a residential treatment center in Warren County.
During his one-year stay at Safe Haven, Shoemaker will be instructed on the judicial process in hopes he eventually become will competent to stand trial.
His trial will be suspended during that one year period, Williams said.
