Penalties for early withdrawal

Man, what ever happened to just getting yourself a paper route?
A 13-year-old boy who police say was caught red-handed a block away was accused on Tuesday of robbing a bank in Peoria.

The unidentified boy was charged with felony armed robbery in juvenile court, accused of threatening a teller with a gun and demanding cash.

He was found hiding in a nearby garage about 30 minutes after Monday's robbery, stained red from a dye pack that had been placed in the bag of money.
He was subsequently sent to bed without dinner. And no television or video games, mister!

(No, actually, according to the article, they're considering trying him as an adult and seeking a 30-year prison term for the little bastard.)
