Chaleb E. Calandra, 19, appears in Juneau Cuperior Court for his arraignment Tuesday for throwing a rock at a passing car that injured a 6-year-old boy.

Two of the three Juneau teenagers accused of throwing rocks at a passing vehicle this summer have pleaded not guilty to felony assault.

Co-defendants Chaleb E. Calandra, 19, and Jared H. Cheatham, 17, entered their pleas Tuesday in Juneau Superior Court before Judge Louis Menendez.

A 10-day jury trial was scheduled to take place in January 2013.

The third teenager, Noel Toribio, 17, did not appear in court for the arraignment. One of the attorneys said he was probably not informed that the arraignment was that day.

Prosecutors say one of the rocks the teenagers threw at a car in July severely injured an unsuspecting 6-year-old boy in the backseat of the vehicle.

Each of the teenagers is charged with felony assault in the first, second and third degree. They were indicted by a grand jury in Juneau earlier this month.

Calandra and Toribio are both represented by court-appointed counsel, and Cheatham is represented by defense attorney Julie Willoughby.

The three were not in custody since they were previously released on their own recognizance.
