The green pouch Ransom is holding contained Emma's ashes and was one of the items stolen from her truck in the early hours of Aug. 2, 2013. The crooks dumped her ashes on the ground not far from the truck and due to rain at the time, many were lost. (Stuart Dryden/QMI Agency)

Three teens who stole a pouch of human ashes which one later dumped in the street, will be spared criminal records if they successfully complete probation.

Youth court Judge Todd LaRochelle on Friday agreed with a joint Crown and defence application that the trio be given conditional discharges for their misbehaviour.

That means if they complete probationary terms, which include no boozing and 100 hours of community service, they won’t have a record of their criminal convictions.
