LYNN, Mass. (AP) - Two Swampscott teenagers charged with throwing eggs at an undercover Lynn police officer posing as a prostitute have admitted to sufficient facts for a guilty finding on an assault and battery charge.

Jacob Finlay and Spencer Webber, both 19, were sentenced Thursday to a year of probation. The Daily Item (https://bit.ly/1qE7lFv ) reports the charges will be dismissed if they successfully complete probation.

A third teen involved is scheduled in court on Aug. 26.

Prosecutors say in June 2013 the teens were in a car that made several passes, yelling and throwing things at the officer. On the fourth pass, the officer was hit in the leg with an egg. The car was pulled over on a fifth pass.

Finlay’s lawyer says his client is remorseful. Webber’s lawyer refused comment.
