of the adults
"Charges against three youths have been stayed. Of the adults, 10 remain in jail and four are out on bail."
in the sentence above, can I say that "stayed" means "suspended"?
does "of the adults" mean the same as "as to/for the adults"?
are this expressions common and good English?
Re: of the adults
Yes and yes.

Both are good English.
