18-year-old young man broke into the high school stole six Imac computers and cameras. There is a broken window in school requested blood sample I'll got suspended for 10 days requested not to return. Jo man provided all cameras and five of the IMac's back to the school. The event happened in September 2015 merchandise was returned December 2015 child was just arrested June 1, 2016 for LARC - GRAND 1ST DEGREE 100K DOLS MORE OR LEO SEMI. What happens next? Child has one other offense in Miami Dade County for being found with marijuana was placed on probation for year may of 2016.
I have no idea what "LARC - GRAND 1ST DEGREE 100K DOLS MORE OR LEO SEMI." means, but if it is a 1st degree grand theft (over $100k) then it's a 1st degree felony punishable by up to 30 years in state prison.
What happens next is that the child needs a real world lawyer.

You are describing a first-degree felony, which is punishable by up to 30 years in State Prison. The defendant is in serious need of a very competent criminal defense attorney to avoid extreme penalties. I strongly recommend you contact an attorney immediately!
I agree with my colleagues, a Grand Theft over 100K Dollars is a first degree felony, punishable by thirty (30) years in the Department of Corrections, if charged as an adult, which it sounds like this is the case.
He will need legal counsel as quickly as possible. You can use the Find a lawyer tool on Avvo to locate an experienced criminal defense attorney in your area.
