Teenagers convicted of setting fire to Abernathy schools could end up spending only seven months in prison.

Juan Dominquez, James Hernandez, Jose Hernandez and Eric Sepeda will be eligible for parole in September. All four began serving an eight year prison sentence for arson and criminal mischief last month.

The early parole is based on state laws in effect at the time the offense occurred. The only one not eligible is the 16-year-old involved in the crime. The fires caused more than a million dollars worth of damage to Abernathy middle and high schools. The district is still rebuilding.
