If you followed my last blog on this, a group of 13 kids who “hacked” into their schools computers were going to get charged with felonies from the luddite school officials.

We learned today that the kids have been offered a deal

From Newsday:

“In meetings with students over the last several days, the Berks County juvenile probation office has quietly offered the students a deal in which all charges would be dropped in exchange for 15 hours of community service, a letter of apology, a class on personal responsibility and a few months of probation.”

Well that’s nice. 

For background, check out  the kid’s perspective of how this all started  (I love it that they set up their own website).
