My crystal ball:

After his preliminary hearing, maybe 10-15 minutes, and promising (cross my heart, hope to die) to show up for other Court appearances, one of the St M JUDGES will release him, based on his youthful appearance. Next month, he will be on the StM County Sheriffs spotlight for 2nd degree escape!
