A teenager stole my son's phone. We tracked the phone down and retrieved it after 3 weeks. The teen is being charged with theft and will face other criminal charges. There are 3500+ SMS texts, 500+ mins of phone calls and the phone is scratched (it was only a week old at the time of theft). His parents (father) knew about the phone as he is one of the people (with a photo) on the contact list. I have plenty of evidence, including GPS location screenshots at different times of day. I need to know if I am able to sue and what is the most amount that I can recover. I have spent at least 20-30 hours communicating/meeting with police, school and cell phone company, which resulted in lost wages. Please advise, thanks!
