PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Two of the four Portland teenagers accused of shooting a fellow high school student with a BB gun and carving a swastika into his forehead entered guilty pleas in court this week and have been sentenced.

The Oregonian reports (http://is.gd/GtrRty ) that 17-year-old Jess Taylor and 15-year-old Jenna Montgomery pleaded guilty in Multnomah County Circuit Court to first-degree kidnapping, first-degree robbery and second-degree assault, and apologized to the victim for the Feb. 10 attack.

Montgomery was sentenced to nearly 10 years in custody and Taylor to seven years and nine months.

The three who are 15 and older were charged as adults. A 14-year-old boy was previously sentenced in juvenile court. The fourth defendant is due in court next month.
