The two teens are being charged as adults and transferred to the Mesa County Jail. This after both the teens attorneys asked the judge to consider keeping them at the Grand Mesa Youth Detention Center so "the children could continue their education". The attorney's also cited lack of space in the Mesa County Jail, Judge Gurley replied to this with, "I'm sure the Sheriff will find room."
