ok first of all, don't post if your just going to flame my friend, he knows hes stupid for doing it but now we need help.

ok so hes been skippin school for a while with a few guys, usually one or 2 classes or just lunch and study block. well he has been going over to this hospital parking lot with some "friends" and they have been looking in the cars to steal stuff (cigs, money, etc). the first time, a security guard came out and told them not to come back. they did again, and then the security gaurd said not to come back one more time. so my friend and his "friends" found one unlocked car and went in it and took some cigs, and they went to a few cars and checked to see if they were unlocked by trying to open doors. turns out the hospitle has pretty good security and they caught all of it on tape. its even worse cause his mom works at the hospital. they got his face, and his friends faces, on camera. hes pretty ****ed. hes going to be questioned by police tomorrow. i told him just to tell the truth. but he said he can go to juvy (hes 16) for breaking into cars.

so i told him to say he was breaking into cars, and say he was only looking for money. he only opened one car and his "friends" did mostly everything. so heres the things he can be charged with

1) breaking into a car
2) stealing things (idk if they caught him stealing the cigs but thats all they stole, no money, but if it comes down to it and they don't have evidence of him stealing things, i said to say he was looking for money only and he didn't find any)
3) skipping school (hes been caught so many times for this but now its worse since he commited crimes while the school was responsible for him)

what should he do. are these misdomeanors or felonies? what are the punishments at least and at worst. what can he do. i know there is "innocent until proven guilty", but they have evidence so he is going to get in trouble but were trying to figure out how to get him in the least trouble.

help please?

It'll probably all blow over and he'll get away with it, and be older and wiser for the experience.

yeah he should be as honest as possible, be real nice, and try to work with the cops. play the innocent, i just wanted to fit in card and he should be given a slap on the wrist. he isnt going to be shipped off to juvy for a first offense. they tend to save that for people with a long rap list or someone that does something much more serious than breaking into cars to steal cigs.

out of curiosity were they busting out windows to get in or just looking for unlocked doors?

Yeah, I've known people to do that at night time and the such, but not from hospital parking lots. Of Course there's gonna be cameras, especially if it's a large hospital.

And think of this:

Some people go to hospitals to see loved ones who could be terminally ill and when they get back to their car, some little sh*ts broke into their cars to take things, only adding more unnecessary problems
#16
First post made me lol.

Serves your friend right. What kind of idiot breaks into cars in a hospital parking lot? The person probably left it unlocked because they were an inch away from death and had to get into the hospital. Then they come out and their cigarettes/money is gone! You just fucked up their day.
I hope it's cold, everyday, where you are.

Both, just to be on the safe side if he Did take both, because if he says he just took cigarrettes, and the cops new he took money as well, or vise-versa, he'd be even more ****ed. They would not appreciate being lied to, that's something that I've found out the hardway, lucky though I could run faster
#18
ok listen, hes been my best friend since i was like 5. he ****ed up, we know. don't try and make us feel bad for him doing it, don't say hes an idiot. we know. i dont care what you think. im just here to find out what he should say to the police.

thank you nolauraltree i appreciate your input


EDIT: what is the legal offense for breaking into a car without busting down windows?

well atleast by saying cigs, he could be like well, i cant buy them, and i smoke , etc etc. plus its not illegal to smoke as a minor, just to buy them for a minor. its a bad excuse but atleast its something.

as for money, it depends on how much they stole. once you steal over a certain amount it becomes more than just a simple misdiminor. but assuming they were only getting loose change and a couple of dollar bills, id say he shouldnt be in too much trouble even if he admitted to it.

plus if his "friends" talk too, they are going to definatley going to say he took some of the money too.

id say in this situation, honesty and acting real sorry for what you did is the best policy.

maybe he should offer to pay for everything he stole, moneywise and cigwise. it wont get him off the hook, but might help to show that he is truly sorry for what he did.

So, this "friend" broke into cars.
Nice cover-up but The Pit sees through your facade.

Those were my thoughts exactly. Just tell the truth to the cops, It's you(r) "friend's" mistake by stealing from people's cars in a HOSPITAL parking lot. Seriously, how low can you sink by stealing from people that are terminally ill and/or have problems?
#25
will he get expelled from school?

EDIT: and he didnt steal any money, its just an excuse to say he wasn't stealing cigs.

You better tell the complete truth and just act really respectful and really sorry and you better not lie or that will just get you in 3458x as deep.

meh things that happen outside of school shouldnt effect him inside of school. all though he did skip school so he might get in trouble for that, but this didnt happen on school grounds and has nothing to do with school so id say no.

i think he should say he was stealing cigs. thats better than saying he was stealing money IMO

Would he go if he wasn't expelled? I mean he WAS supposed to be in school, but he, instead, decided to go break into cars in a HOSPITAL parking lot. Thats gotta be the lowest of the low.
I say if he comes clean, cooperates, and just agrees not to do it again, he should just get a slap on the wrist.
