Morgan Huelin trial: five teenagers sentenced for moving body
Five teenagers who moved their friend's body after he took a drugs cocktail at a party have been sentenced.
Morgan Huelin, 16, died in hospital in July after he was found unconscious in a country lane in Trinity, Jersey.
Four defendants, who can not be named for legal reasons, received community sentences at Jersey Youth Court for perverting the course of justice.
One of those was also put on the sex offenders register for two years for possessing indecent images of children.
He was additionally fined for drug offences, while the fifth boy was bound over for perverting the course of justice.
They had all denied the charges of perverting the court of justice, but were found guilty on 24 March.
The teenagers moved Mr Huelin's body from the garage down a rural lane, after one of the boys woke the morning after the party to find Morgan "foaming" at the mouth, the court had heard.
Prosecutors described it as an "extreme and unusual" thing to do, but the defence claimed the teenagers were trying to prevent one of the defendant's parents from finding the body.
Emergency services were eventually called by a passer-by but Morgan died in hospital later that day.
