Amparo is charged with one count of Riot, a class B felony. Morales is charged with one count of Riot, a class A misdemeanor. Both were arraigned on Thursday, 02/24/05 in the Portsmouth District Court.

Additionally, three juveniles were also arrested in the incident. They have been turned over to their parents and will face proceedings in the Juvenile Court system.
