Pennsylvania State Police Trooper Jeffrey Osborne escorts three former Youngsville High School students, from left Tylor Keyes, Duston Miller, and Derek Gifford, out of Warren County Courthouse Courtroom B on Wednesday afternoon after each suspect waived his preliminary hearing. The three are accused of vandalizing the school on June 16 resulting in clean-up costs running to an estimated $650,000.
The three had been imprisoned in the Warren County Jail since they were arrested on the day of the vandalism - June 16.
There was a condition to the waiver agreement that the men not go onto Warren County School District property.
The suspects did not have to pay $50,000 bail. They will have to pay that amount and return to jail if they violate the conditions of their release - by committing a crime, violating the supervision agreement, going on school district property, or missing a court date, for example.
Arraignments are scheduled for 9:30 a.m. Thursday, Aug. 29, in the Warren County Courthouse Main Courtroom.
