Trenton says the first time he went to juvenile detention, he was 11. “It sucked,” says the 14-year-old who insists he never wants to go back. Trenton is currently facing possible felony and misdemeanor charges of theft, destruction of property, and trespassing. He admits to damaging school property and stealing a handicap parking sign from the parking lot at his school. “He doesn’t like juvenile hall, but it doesn’t seem to be enough of an influence to stop his behavior,” says Trenton’s mother, Heather.
