Lengthy Juvenile Record Results In High Bond For Teen

A lengthy juvenile criminal record resulted in bond being set for $160,000 for a teen suspected of burglary.

According to an article in the Sun Sentinel, Andrew Peltreau was arrested and charged with burglary and possession of burglary tools. It was the 17-year-old's sixth arrest for burglary, theft to strong-arm robbery since January 15, 2011. There were also many more on his juvenile record. According to a Broward judge, Peltreau would have been serving a 30-year prison term if he was not a juvenile when the crimes were committed.

Peltreau maintained that he had changed his ways and was simply at the wrong place at the wrong time for the current burglary crime he was being charged with. It was pointed out to Peltreau that he and a second suspect were caught breaking into the house and that both were wearing gloves and that Peltreau was wering a hooded jacket and carrying a pipe.
