A former Chester High student-athlete was denied bond Thursday for his alleged involvement in a string of home-invasion burglaries and the shooting of a horse.
Jon-Michael Sanders, 16, is charged with three counts of burglary, one count of attempted murder, two counts of armed robbery and possession of weapon during the commission of a crime. At the outset of the hearing, Judge Brian Gibbons called lawyers from both sides to his bench, then explained the reason for that brief session.
"I know this young man. I know his family," Gibbons said.
