FOX23 News has obtained the juvenile records of the three teens charged with murdering a truck driver at a Tulsa Papa John's.

Investigators say Jermaine Savory, Frankie Jackson Jr. and Damian Anderson, all aged 17, shot and killed Robert Horton while trying to rob him.

The records reveal all three had extensive juvenile criminal histories and began committing crimes at a young age.

Anderson and Jackson were arrested for the first time at age 12. Jermaine Savory was arrested for the first time at age 9.

Damian Anderson has faced multiple assault and battery charges, including an attack on a Nathan Hale High School employee. He was also caught carrying a firearm as a minor twice, caught in possession of a stolen vehicle, and busted for auto burglary.

In November 2012, he was accused of refusing to leave the Nathan Hale campus after being suspended, and elbowing a police officer who tried to make him leave.

Frankie Jackson had multiple arrests for possession of marijuana, and one for dealing drugs. He has resisted arrest, and been caught with a gun as a minor. He's also been charged with false personation and assault and battery on a Tulsa school employee or student. After spending several months in the Lakeside Home, as of February, he was attending Street School.

Jermaine Savory had the longest and most violent criminal history of the three.

He was arrested for his first burglary at age nine and has been arrested on burglary charges six times overall. He has been caught stealing from retailers four times and has multiple probation violations.

In July of 2011, court documents show a judge described Savory as having a "pattern of behavior that he is a threat to his own safety as well as a threat to the safety of the community."

Two months later he was accused of trying to incite a riot in juvenile detention. He was also convicted of assault and battery on an Oklahoma Juvenile Affairs contractor twice. Two other similar charges were dismissed.

All three teens were on probation the night Horton was killed.

All three have pleaded not guilty to Robert Horton's murder, and all three are scheduled for their next court hearing on May 17.
