Small Town Teaching

Or, Seeing your students in the paper, 5 years later ...

The highlights: in a restaurant at 5am, stole booze and a cash register (with $10 in change) then drank the booze and passed out in the kitchen. 0.17 BAC. Also stole jewelry from a local home a few days before.

felony burglary and misdemeanor petty larceny, petty larceny for jewelry
maximum penalty of more than 16 years behind bars and $2,500 in fines if convicted of the three charges.

I never had trouble with this kid, just not very motivated, not very likable or willing to be someone other than his history. He'd come in, do the minimum or less. Pass or fail, he didn't really care. Some kids are like that. He dropped out of my algebra 1 as I recall. Took it with another teacher. I'll have to look it up. 16 years seems a awfully long time for B&E, though.
