Trial Date of Teens in Confederate Monument Vandalism (Alabama)

Breaking News

An April trial date has been set for three teenagers charged in juvenile court with vandalizing a 109-year-old Confederate monument at the state Capitol....

They're accused of jumping over a waist-high fence during the November 11 weekend and painting the hands and faces of four granite soldiers black.

The vandals also wrote "N.T. 11 11 31" in black paint on the monument's base. That's thought to be a reference to the date rebellious slave Nat Turner was hanged in 1831.
