What is punishment for stolen iPod?

Asked over 2 years ago - Chicago, IL

I am a teacher and a student stole my iPod. I had a suspect but he denied it. It was later found in his locker. I made a police report right away. What is the legal ramification for a 16 who stole an iPod? Happened in Chicago.

Additional information

Also iPod and case were valued at $400.

    Lawyer agrees

    Answered . This depends upon whether the school disciplines him or he is charged as a juvenile offender. If charged, he is likely to receive some sort of minimal punishment. Sometimes incidents like this are handled internally by the police and never go to court. This is called station adjustment if I recall correctly. A lot depends upon the young man;s prior history.
