A judge ordered two teens (age 15 and 16) to post an apology on YouTube for throwing a drink in the face of a teller at a cashier in a fast food restaurant's drive up window.
The teens are charged with two counts of battery and one count of criminal mischief. Prosecutors say the boys must serve 100 hours of community service and send letters to the victims to have the charges dropped, Seminole-Brevard State Attorney spokeswoman Lynn Bumpus-Hooper told the Orlando Sentinel.Link Video
Despite the online apology, the victim, ex-Taco Bell employee Jessica Ceponis, told the "Today Show" that she wasn't satisfied.
I don't think the lesson is completely learned, because they are still young, and, to some of their friends, this is going to make them heroes," Ceponis said.
