Lucky for him he wasn't carving guns or tea party symbols out of those bars of soap. For then he'd be investigated by the NSA, or the IRS, or by both.
There is no statute of limitation for those crimes.
he was just a 7-year-old Cub Scout who enjoyed carving polar bears out of bars of soap
Possessing a small carving knife would get you expelled in most school districts today. Sad, but true.
Congratulations to this young man and I hope he ultimately get’s the happy life badge.
