The four may have remained unidentified had their phones not automatically connected to the school's WiFi system, The Post reported. Students use individual IDs to log into the school's WiFi system. Each teen had their cellphone on them when spray-painting the school, and each phone automatically connected to the WiFi. Authorities were able to see who accessed the WiFi at the time the vandals were caught on security cameras.
Each of the teens received jail sentences of differing lengths that were served on the weekends. They were also sentenced to probation and community service. All four will be eligible to have their hate crimes expunged from their record when they complete probation.
