Ok, so here's the story––––the kid got caught in a stolen vehicle as a juvenile. As a juvenile. Just to let this sink in. No enhancers to make the arrest or conviction carry over to his adult life, or to curtail his rights in any way. Today, a couple hours ago, on the advice of his attorney, he pled guilty (well, agreed to his delinquency, but functionally the same thing,) to unauthorized use of a moveable––not even unauthorized use of a motor vehicle, which is a more serious charge, just the more minor offense. He was given 6 months in a juvenile corrections facility, credit for time served. The court officer was directed to take him into custody to transport him to Youth Study, where he would have been housed for one day then released early and placed on 6 months active probation due to space constraints at the facility, along with one other reason.

So what did genius do? In a court building filled with video cameras, he struck the officer (battery,) and escaped from his custody and attempted to flee the court building (simple escape.)

Simple escape, for those unfamiliar with LA law, is a felony, punishable by a minimum of two years, with a maximum of five years, at hard labor. And remember my emphasis of the kid's status as being caught as a juvenile? And the "other reason" Youth Study would have put him on probation and released him? Genius turned adult last week.

Welcome to the adult CJ system, asshat, and enjoy your stay at big people prison, and loss of rights due to impending felony conviction.

At least he's getting an early start on his career as an adult criminal. Some people never learn...

Moron, maybe he'll end up as somebody's bitch in the big house.

He'll get kicked out of Latin Club for sure now.

You have to admit, one of the best perks of working in LE is the entertainment value. Just when you thought you have seen it all, some one takes the cake....again.
