Any number of things -- but he is probably going to be charged as an adult . What possessed him to do all that?

Read the following and either have him immediately contact his public defender or hire private criminal defense attorney.  If he is going to hire a private criminal defense attorney, try www.attorneypages.com and check his or her record at the New York State Bar.
