HUTCHINSON, Kan. (AP) -- A Hutchinson teenager has pleaded guilty to a spate of burglaries and thefts around the city, including several break-ins at churches.

The Hutchinson News reports (http://bit.ly/SmHoJa ) that 16-year-old Joshua Hickey pleaded guilty Tuesday to 38 charges, including 19 felonies. He'll be sentenced Nov. 16.

Hickey was certified for trial as an adult after he and three older co-defendants were arrested Aug. 6.

Hickey was charged with breaking into several Hutchinson churches and from April 1 to July 23, stealing and cash. Some of the churches were victimized twice, and four of the burglaries occurred on a single day in July.

He was also accused of burglarizing or stealing from stores and Hutchinson High School.

The other three suspects are charged with taking part in some of the break-ins.
