had a visit with the lawyer yesterday. It's looking like my son could be looking at a # of different routes. Not really sure what it will be, but my sons att. is asking for a differment, plead guilty to a lesser charge,2 yrs differed probation and repay whatever was taken plus court costs/fees. Differment means it will not go on his record after he finishes his commitments.
With that said, I really feel like my son is getting hosed when it comes to repaying the owner for the stolen goods. This fucking guy says my son stole a fucking truckload of shit from him. 2 kids on bicycles and 1 dufflebag, one trip, witnesses to the amount of stuff that was taken from my house, etc...
45 skateboards? 20 sweatshirts? 20 shirts? 5 pairs of shoes? and a WHOLE buch of small expensive shit? Go figure. There is no way 2 kids can haul that much loot. The way I see it, the guy got ripped off, so he's making the most of it. He got ALL the goods back, which 90% were still in the package and very sell-able. He got an insurance settlement. He got a settlement from the minors' father(which we have no legal access too.) And now he wants my son to pay full retail on everything that was stolen. Talk about a goldmine!!! Granted, someone else could have stolen more shit when they left the scene, but....this particular shop would be completely EMPTY if they had taken that much stuff. Pretty sure once this guy gets his money, the shop will close.
Done venting, at least his ass ain't going to jail---and no felony @ age 18.
As far as I'm concerned, the store owner is just as bad as what my son did, lies, fraud, etc. With that said, this half-pint motherfucker tries telling me he will recommend that my son join the military. Gimme a fucking break. Lying little stealing motherfucKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKer!
