He gets a couple of years - because he was a minor, but they pretty much threw the book at him.

I remember reading somewhere that the prosecution wanted to focus on his probation time instead of any punishment as he figured the kid would do something as an adult and wanted his probation to still be in effect.

If you read the article it says that if he fails to meet the terms of his probation as an adult, he could face decades in prison.

I'm guessing he's going to run at some point, because no way in hell will this douchebag comply.

sounds like the half remembered news article from when this first happened was right.
