A 17-year-old who in recent months was placed on community control on an assault charge was back in the Highland County Juvenile Court this week facing alleged probation violations.

It was alleged that the teenage male had violated his house arrest and after hearing testimony from witnesses, the court found that he had.

He was first placed on probation in late June.

The 17-year-old was ordered to remain in detention until the last week of September. Upon his release, he will be under community control supervision indefinitely.

In other hearings, a 16-year-old male was ordered to remain in detention until further order from the court after allegedly failing a drug screen.

The teenager was first placed on community control in January for a misdemeanor drug paraphernalia possession charge.

Another 17-year-old male was released this week following a stint in detention that began after his arrest earlier this month.

Prior to his release, he admitted to misdemeanor domestic violence. He was placed on indefinite community control, has a 90-day suspended commitment to detention, is to complete an anger management class, and must undergo mental health and substance abuse assessments.
