Likely he will have to answer the charge of unauthorized use of a vehicle. He could be detained by the court, but likely will not be unless he has an extensive juvenile record beyond what you’ve detailed here.

My school forced me as a (13 year old student) to give them access to my personally paid for laptop by threatening me with harsh consequences without consulting my guardian,Is this illegal?
They conducted a pat down and made him remove his shoes. There were other kids in the bathroom, however, they were told to leave. No drugs have ever been found on my son. Can a school repeatedly search the same child If no evidence of wrong doing has been found?
