Teen Trio Admits Smearing Cake With Feces in Prank

Three Pennsylvania teens must clean toilets, urinals and bed pans after admitting they iced a birthday cake with feces as a prank on a high school classmate.

The Daily Local News of West Chester reports the girls were also ordered Monday to pick up dog droppings at a local park during their 200 hours of community service in return for guilty pleas stemming from the March incident at Avon Grove High School.

Authorities say the trio and a juvenile student provided school officials with written confessions after a classmate and her family was sickened by the cake. [LA replies: This is the behavior that the AP calls a “prank.”]

The Daily Local News report ( ) say Mayra Flores, Ana Mireles and Sandra Ortiz also received probation after pleading guilty to recklessly endangering another person and conspiracy.

The juvenile’s case is still pending.

Are you wondering, as I am, if “sickened” is the way the writer of that article chose to downplay a potentially deadly E. coli infection, while implying mere emotional reactions on the part of the victims?
