I am really sorry to hear that it was your kid.

All I can say is, he's 12. He has no flipping idea of how much he has hurt you, none whatever. However smart, however responsible, he has only the vaguest inkling. He just wanted to do what he wanted to do and didn't really think about the consequences. I wish they would all be born having the judgement of a thirty year old, but well, not even some thirty year olds...

So it wasn't aimed at you. I know that's cold comfort, but it's something. Honestly, the times when I learned my lesson with my parents is when they made it totally clear to me that I had lost their respect. To this day, that keeps me straighter than the legal system ever will.

I wish you well with this, what a heartache.
