On Thursday, they waived their right to a preliminary hearing, intending to plead guilty on February 17th to state bomb and explosive charges and placing bombs near any type of structure or vehicle with intent to destroy.

In all, Marshall county authorities found 28 bombs. The teens confessed to the crimes saying they did it because they were bored.
