Fire a Spitwad, Go to Jail

SF Chronicle story:

Jeffrey Figueroa, 13, admits he shot a spitwad at his Walnut Creek school last fall and that it hit another student in the right eye, requiring surgery.

But the seventh-grader and his parents said today that he never should have been convicted of two felonies — let alone charged — for what they call a schoolyard accident. He faces spending up to eight years in a juvenile prison.
