Decision Date: 
December 30, 2013
District: 
2d Dist.
Division/County: 
Winnebago Co.
Justice: 
McLAREN
Holding: 
Affirmed in part and vacated in part.
Two minor brothers were adjudged delinquent minors after court found charges of aggravated criminal sexual abuse proven, after sexual actions toward fellow student on school activity bus. Court was in superior position to judge students' credibility and maturity by viewing bus videorecording and observing minors in court. Court's inference that minors' actions were for sexual gratification or arousal is not against manifest weight of evidence. Sexual Assault Fine is inapplicable to delinquent minors. (HUTCHINSON and SPENCE, concurring.)
