What is the difference between a prank and committing a crimeof breaking and entering?? Why would the sentence be any different. Maybe they just got caught before they could do anything.

I don't understand why a bunch of old people would do this to a library. I mean, why don't these seniors stay at their center?

Lighten up Gestapo. It was a prank!! No harm, no foul. Press charges? Tarnish these kids for life for something so stupid? Deters, no wonder you continue your fall from grace. And of course, yet another overreaction from police (police can never be expected to take anything lightly, except ticketing their blue brothers). And treating an 18 year old student differently from a 17 year old student? Yet another problem with the system. This whole thing is ridiculous.

They won't have a record if they complete the diversion program the article mentioned.

How can they be charged as adults? It is apparent that they wouldn't fall in that catagory.

The article did not mention that. It said the diversion program would require a guilty plea. Sounds like permanent record to me.

No...the court requires a guilty plea on the record, holds the case in abeyance, and once they complete the program, the court dismisses the charges. If they don't complete the program, then the court accepts the previous guilty plea, convicts, and then sentences them.

These kids will be fine.
Wow that is a lot

Regardless, it's still a massive overreaction, a total waste of time for everyone involved, a waste of judicial resources, and brings a dark cloud over these kid's heads when they're preparing for college. Dear Kids: Never have fun. Thank you.
