And I've seen my girlfriend's brother do just about as much as you can reasonabley expect a juvenile to do and I can tell you that he hasn't spent more than a full week in a detention facility. He's stolen, done drugs (many different kinds - and got caught with them), threatened cops and more. So I doubt they'd put up much of a fuss if I just fail to fix a problem that they was THEIR fault.
