Three Jenks High School football players will perform community service and attend counseling for their roles in an accident that killed a teammate. That is the ruling from a Tulsa County juvenile court judge.

17-year-old Garrett Bennett died in July when the SUV he was riding in crashed on the Creek Turnpike. The accident happened when a paintball fired from another vehicle hit the windshield.

The judge ordered each of the young men to perform 40 hours of community service. They have to use those hours to benefit the homeless or speak to other youth about safe driving and good decisions.
