Oh that sucks. At 14 it will be sealed after he hits 18. Use it to scare him straight. I would work with a lawyer and make sure he does not go to jail for it, but ask them to give him community service so he thinks twice before doing it again.

they just don't think.I was a volunteer juvenile probation officer for misdemeanors for about 5 yrs.Does your county offer deferred adjudication?If so this would be a good choice.You will not need to hire a lawyer because he is admitting guilt.Here is what would have been my path w/ him.If he is currently passing all classes w/ a c or above he would be required to do so for 6 months.He would have to do 10 - 20 hrs community service.Either with the county or arranged discreetly through school ,church etc.Do a serious research report of the effects of stealing on the cost to the community about 1500 words.Done well.Go to a short term counseling service to access is this stupid teen or serious deep issues or illness.Miss no school w/out M.D. note Keep monthly apt with me .Break no more laws .He would have 6 months and then he could be clean.I could almost predict success and if the teen would repeat based on parents reaction
