PLAINFIELD TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) - Seven high school lacrosse players in the Grand Rapids area have been sentenced to a week in jail for breaking into a teacher’s home for a night of destructive partying.

The punishment to be served later this month means they’ll miss their graduation ceremony at Comstock Park High School. Kent County District Judge Sara Smolenski says the behavior was “egregious.” The teens pleaded guilty Friday to illegal entry, a misdemeanor.

The Grand Rapids Press (https://bit.ly/1F4AaAv ) says the seven boys entered the home of teachers Barbara and Jon Weir on Dec. 18 when the Weirs were away. They drank alcohol and caused damage estimated at $3,000.

The newspaper says six of the seven boys had a previous marijuana conviction. They apologized to the Weirs, the school and their parents.
