Philip Bay to be tried as an adult

Landstown suspect to be tried as adult:

In my last post about Philip Bay I said that his trial was supposed to start this past Wednesday. That statement was incorrect. This past Wednesday was his hearing to see if he would be tried as an adult for plotting a bombing attach against Landstown High in Virginia Beach and being in possession of a multitude of explosive devices. This past Wednesday a judge ruled that Bay will be tried as an adult. Bay is 18 now but was 17 at the time of his arrest in April.

Bay’s 16-year-old cohort in the plot pleaded guilty to weapons and terrorism charges. He was charged as a juvenile and will be sentenced in September.
