A Mentor teen and his parents face possible civil-rights penalties because the teen intimidated a black neighbor who moved into his mostly white neighborhood.
     It could be the first time in Ohio that parents are held liable for a civil-rights violation committed by their child, said Tony Delgado, a spokeswoman for the Ohio Civil Rights Commission.
