KENT COUNTY, Mich. -- Seven Comstock Park students were sentenced to seven days in the Kent County jail Friday after pleading guilty to breaking into a teacher's home.

Each student will also lose their driver's license for six months. The judge said six of the young men will also have a drug conviction on their record. Marijuana use reportedly took place during the Dec. 8, 2014 incident. .

Thad Dudick, Mike Egeler, Collin Reimersma, Nick VanOost, Adam Price, Matt Hasman and Timm Carr each pleaded guilty to one count of illegal entry in connection with the  incident. 

The students, all 18 years old, were accused of partying with alcohol and performing lewd acts inside the home of chemistry teacher Jon Wier.

According to Wier’s Linkedin account, he has been teaching at Comstock Park High School for 19 years, is the tennis coach, and helps with the lacrosse team.  Several of the teens charged in this case play on the lacrosse team in addition to playing football.

All seven of the students apologized in court for the incident.
