Orleans County, New York: men accused of harassing worshippers at mosque offered plea deals

Five Holley teens accused of harassing worshippers at an Orleans County mosque in August were offered plea deals after appearing in court Monday night.

Authorities allege the teens drove past the World Sufi Foundation Mosque in Carlton, firing a gun, shouting obscenities and beeping the horn. One worshipper was allegedly struck by the vehicle at the mosque.

Jeff Donahue, Anthony Ogden and Dylan Phillips, all 18; and Mark Vendetti and Tim Weader, both 17, were charged with harassment and disrupting a religious service, a misdemeanor. Vendetti was also charged with criminal possession of a weapon, a felony.
