Here is the good news. She is still young enough ....to scare the living shit outta her! Tell her that what she did was not only wrong...but It was against the law!
Make a couple of calls to your local courthouse or county jail. Ask if they ever give 'boot camps' or tours to troubled kids. Take her for a 'QUICK' PEEK ...at one of these places. Explain that every action has a consequence...and if she continues on this path....she will end up in jail. If that doesnt' give her a wake up call....I don't know what would!
As far as discipline....take away whatever she cherishes the most. You have to 'customize' punishments for every child.....find out what their 'currency ' is ...and take it away. For this offense...i would say 1 month!
good luck! ...glad you are taking this seriously!
