HAMILTON, Ohio (AP) - Two southwest Ohio teens who took part in setting another teen's hair on fire aboard a school bus have been sentenced to treatment in a rehabilitation center, and a third has been sentenced to probation.

The boys were sentenced Friday in Hamilton, where they had entered the juvenile court equivalent of guilty pleas.

A 15-year-old and 17-year-old who pleaded to attempted aggravated assault will complete treatment in a locked juvenile rehabilitation center. Juvenile Justice Center Director Rob Clevenger says the average stay is six months.

A 16-year-old who pleaded to disorderly conduct must perform probation and community service.

Sixteen-year-old Devin Lewis was on a Middletown school bus Feb. 4 when someone pulled off his hood. He says he jerked his head back when one student held a lighter in his face and another burned a chunk of his hair.
