FAIRBANKS- One of three teenagers accused of theft and vandalism at Two Rivers Elementary School has agreed to a plea deal with prosecutors.

Eighteen-year-old Wesley Travis Phillips was sentenced Friday to 45 days incarceration after he pleaded guilty to burglary, theft and criminal mischief.

Phillips was also sentenced to 200 hours of community service and to pay restitution.

Another 18-year-old Two Rivers man, Mason Silas Bizzarro, was expected to agree to the same deal, but backed out after Superior Court Judge Paul Lyle cautioned against him being represented by the same attorney representing Phillips.

The teens and a 14-year-old boy are accused of causing $10,000 in damage to the school and stealing $7,000 in electronics equipment.

Bizzaro was scheduled for an Aug. 27 status hearing.
