Extended sentence sought for teen, 14, for sword attack

Prosecutors are asking for an extended sentence for one of two teenage boys involved in an apparent drug-fueled sword attack in Spokane Valley in September. The 14-year-old, who was 13 at the time of the crime, was found guilty of second-degree assault and other charges earlier this month. The standard sentencing range, based on his lack of criminal history, would keep him confined for up to 36 weeks on the assault charge, according to court records, and other sanctions for taking a vehicle without permission, burglary and malicious mischief. Prosecutors say the roughly nine-month sentence is not enough for the severity of his crimes.
