Athens, Ohio (AP) -- Three Ohio University pranksters have been fined hundreds of dollars for barricading a dormitory adviser in his room twice, first with rope and later with a chain and padlock.
Nineteen-year-old Andrew Upperman and 20-year-old Daniel Rambacher, both of north Canton, and 19-year-old Thomas Grasso of Chagrin Falls pleaded no contest this week to misdemeanor charges including criminal mischief and unlawful restraint.
The now former OU students were convicted by an Athens County municipal court judge, who ordered them to pay fines ranging from $750 to $1,100 and each serve 100 hours of community service.
The dorm resident assistant was not harmed when he was trapped the two times in may.
