KOHLER - Imagine waking up to tables tossed aside, bleach in your flower beds, toilet paper in your trees. That was the aftermath at judge Katie Delahunt's home just last weekend.

"Our tiki torches, all the rod iron lawn furniture, bird feeders, the hoses, firewood. Every stitch of anything you could pick up, it was thrown around," says Judge Katie Delahunt.

Authorities identified the culprits -- a group of students at Sheboygan North High School, who were dumb enough to post their shopping list of stuff they smeared everywhere online.

"It's disrespectful. It's a little unnerving."

The judge's home has been the target of student shenanigans before, but nothing like this. Power washing, repainting, and removing what was left still hasn't fixed everything -- something these kids clearly didn't think about.

"It's not a good feeling to have someone damage things that you own."

Judge Delahunt hopes the teens have learned their lesson, and that you have, too -- saying the best protection is you keeping an eye on your kids so they don't end up in her courtroom.

"Kids maybe don't have good judgment. Parents need to help them."

The judge says the teens did show up and apologize. They also helped clean up and will split the cost of the damage -- now about $1,000 and counting.
