EAST BRIDGEWATER (CBS) — An East Bridgewater family is furious over the sentence handed down to four teenagers who trashed their home.

The teens wrecked the place and caused more than $50,000 in damage. They were convicted of malicious destruction of property. But the judge isn’t giving them any jail time.

They’ve repaired what they could, but for Jill Steidle-Abbett and her family, the emotional damage

got worse when a judge sentenced the teens to one year probation and monthly community service.

In February 2010 Steidle-Abbett and her husband went on vacation.  Her teenage son let a few friends in. Then, dozens began showing up, and it got out of hand.

WBZ-TV’s Bill Shields reports.
