ST. JOHNS, AZ - A St. John's boy who acknowledged fatally shooting his father's friend pleaded guilty Friday to a trio of probation violations.
Prosecutors offered to drop the majority of alleged violations against the 12-year-old boy if he acknowledged twice leaving a residential treatment center without permission and destroying a wall clock.
A spokeswoman for the Apache County Superior Court says the boy pleaded guilty to three probation violations, and 12 other allegations were dismissed.
The boy was 8 when he was charged in a double homicide in St. Johns in 2008.
He eventually pleaded guilty to negligent homicide in the death of his father's friend and was sentenced to residential treatment. Prosecutors dropped a murder charge against the boy in his father's death.
Sentencing on the probation violations is set for Aug. 10.
