CORAL GABLES, Fla. (AP) — Seven people accused of walking through an unlocked door at the home of former Miami Heat player Ray Allen have been charged with trespassing.

Police say the teens were attending a party next door when they entered the Coral Gables home last week. Allen’s wife and children were sleeping upstairs. Allen’s wife woke up and screamed, and the teens ran.

The 18- and 19-year-olds told police they thought the Allens had moved. Police initially released them because there was no forced entry and nothing was taken. At the time, the Allens’ attorney said the couple was upset that charges weren’t filed because a crime had been committed.

Attorney Gregory Victor says the Allens are now satisfied that charges were filed Wednesday and the teens will face consequences for their actions.
