St. Paul Teen Gets House Arrest for Attacking Teacher

A St. Paul teen has been sentenced to house arrest after he attacked a teacher at St. Paul Central High School last month, leaving him with a traumatic brain injury. 

According to Minnesota Public radio News, Judge James Clark sentenced the teen on Tuesday to 90 days of supervision and electronic home monitoring.  He will also have to complete 150 hours of community service. 

The teen pleaded guilty to juvenile charges last month. 

Prosecutors asked that the teen receive treatment in a facility away from his family,  however, the judged agreed with probation officials who recommended the boy remain in his home while receiving treatment. 

The attack left science teacher John Ekblad with a traumatic brain injury.  

Ekblad plans to sue St. Paul Public Schools for allegedly failing to provide a safe working environment.
