My kid may be in pretty serious trouble. In all probability it's not going to be a question of if charges will be brought against him, but what charges will be brought against him. He made an error in judgement, a stupid mistake that may ruin his life at the tender age of 14. While he should have known better morally, he honestly had no idea that it might be illegal. I don't know if I would have, either.
He's not alone in this trouble, and I don't know how much of the blame will be placed on him. We won't know anything until the detectives get the case tomorrow and decide what to do. It could go any way and we could be very lucky, or he could be made an example out of. I've been led to believe that it could be very bad for him.
Expulsion from school may be the least of our problems as I won't be able to afford the school any more if I have to hire a lawyer. I've already consulted one.
I can't stop crying and I'm terrified. The worst part is not knowing what is going to happen, so my mind is free to explore all the worst case scenarios. Including the very real possibility that the FBI may have to get involved.
If you have a minute and the inclination, would you please say a prayer for him? He's a good kid, he's never been in any trouble, and I'm so scared for him...
