The Boy will now be placed on a shortened timeframe of "informal probation" - just to help keep his good behavior streak going strong (fear is a powerful motivator for The Boy). He is also required to write a letter of apology to his teachers (I think he already met this requirement as a condition of being let back into the classroom).
The public defender is calling The Boy today after school to tell him the good news. It will be one work day I'll really look forward to a phone call from The Boy...and I bet the conversation will NOT start with the phrase "I'm starving, what can I eat?", like it usually does.
