The 14-year-old Oak Park and River Forest High School student who was charged with using Apple’s AirDrop feature to send the image of a swastika to the cellphones of students during a Tradition of Excellence assembly on Nov. 9 was in court on Nov. 14. 

The student had been charged with dissemination of an obscene message. According to a recent Chicago Sun-Times report, the teenager “arrived at court with his parents and was released back into custody.” 

But that was before the judge admonished the teen, asking him, “What the hell are you doing in my courtroom?” 

The judge told the boy’s parents to “set restrictions you deem appropriate” before telling the student to “take care of yourself and don’t be stupid.” 

The Nov. 9 incident happened after D200 officials discovered racist and anti-Semitic graffiti on campus on Nov. 2 and Nov. 6.
