The police officer checks Stanley's room and sees the Clide Livingston poster on the wall.
Stanley is going to go to a hearing but they have to delay it because Clide has baseball and they are his shoes.
"Those shoes were valued over $5,000. It was money that would provide food and shelter for the homeless and you stole that from them just so you could have a souvenir." Stanley told the truth, but perhaps it would have been better if he had lied a little.
Stanley and his family finally go to court. They can't afford a lawyer so he tells the truth.
The judge says that Stanley is guilty. He has the choice to go to jail or Camp Green Lake.
Stanley chooses Camp Green Lake because he has never gone to camp before.
He is sent on a long trip to the camp. Besides the driver and the guard, he was the only one on the bus. The theme of this story is don't be quick to judge.
