TORRINGTON, Conn. (AP) _ Three Torrington High School students have been charged with painting racist and sexual graffiti on the school in March.

Eighteen-year-olds Jacob Wellman and Stephen Lamonte and a 17-year-old, whose name was not released, face charges including conspiracy, criminal mischief, loitering and breach of peace.

Wellman also faces a hate crimes charge.

Police say the graffiti, which included a swastika, a stick figure in a noose, the words “Hail Hitler” and a drawing of a penis, were found on an outside wall of the school’s gym.

Attempts to reach the students Wednesday morning were not successful. Reached at home by the Republican-American newspaper, Wellman declined to comment.

Lamonte and Wellman were released on $5,000 bonds and are to appear in court June 2. The school says all three face disciplinary hearings.
