High school prank could land a teen in jail for 8 years

OK he deserves the misdemeanor, but felony charges? Why does he have to pay for the school's overreaction? He wasn't trying to harm anyone and no one was harmed. If they need to prosecute him fine, but don't destroy his life.

I can only shake my head at the sheer ridiculousness of this.

8 years, and they expect us to respect the law?

Wrong, any society that can put a kid in jail for 8 years for this, is not worth respect let alone protecting/saving.

8 years from now, I could see the boy doing something that might be best called payback.
Expert counsel, generous advice from friends, and my own knowledge has left me realizing, I am all that a man needs to be a man, and yet, I live half my day with a woman's frame of mind all the same.
I'd rather something in the way of more mundane troubles :)
