Students Charged With School Computer Thefts

Two students are accused of stealing computers from a Wayne County high school.

Demonta Bowden of La Grange and Eric Hamm of Goldsboro are charged with felony larceny and possession of stolen goods.

Deputies say three netbook computers, valued at $1,020, were stolen from a classroom at Eastern Wayne High School.

It's not known whether the two students also face disciplinary action from the school system. Attempts to reach Wayne County Schools were unsuccessful as the school system is closed on Fridays.

    They are common criminals and will never receive what they should have coming. This is only the beginning of what they will become - repeat offenders. I agree with the hard labor "LawedGToDeath" suggests. I'm not however worried about their inability to vote but more so whether they're just signing up to be another useless drain on society.

    To be honest LawedToDeath more then likely those charges will be plead down to a lessor charge. Keep in mind that when charged they will try to charge them with the crime that offers the most punishment. I have no compassion for them as the know that stealing is wrong.

    Schools out and Wayne counties finest are ready for action. This is only the tip of the iceberg for Goldsboro. The county breeds this faction of society..

    The only issue I have here is the felony charge for such young people - a felony record follows you forever, even worse than an arrest, which is bad enough. LONG list of places who will never hire them, they can't vote, etc. This is why we need some kind of work/hard labor punishment instead of these "everything's a felony now" laws and mandatory sentences. You get NO second chances with a felony conviction. No excuses for what they did. Just sayin'
