(CBS/AP) A judge has ordered five juveniles who admitted taking part in the videotaped bullying of a 13-year-old boy in Upper Darby Township, Pennsylvania to abide by a curfew and 45 days of home monitoring.

The teens also were ordered Thursday to perform community service after admitting their roles in return for having the most serious charges against them dropped. They received curfew restrictions ranging from 60 to 90 days and were released to their parents.

The 13-year-old victim, Nadin Khoury, was dragged through the snow, stuffed in a tree and hung by his jacket from a 7-foot-high fence post in the January 11 attack.

Police said after the incident, Khoury , who attends the community's Beverly Hills Middle School, went home and 911 was called.

Khoury made an apearance on ABC's "The View" days after the incident.

A sixth teen assailant had been scheduled for trial but also entered into an agreement with prosecutors. He remains in custody pending a March 3 hearing.
