(CBS)-(CBS) NEW YORK In this day and age where young students are frequently charged for serious school offenses such as possessing weapons, dealing drugs, or assaulting other students on school property, one Brooklyn teen's arrest may come as a surprise. A 13-year-old girl was handcuffed and placed under arrest in front of her classmates in Dyker Heights after she wrote "Okay" on her desk.
Police confirm that that's exactly what's written on her arrest record and for the crime, she's been charged with criminal mischief and the making of graffiti. Fraser says the day she marked her desk, she was wrongly grouped together with troublemakers who had plastered stickers all over the classroom.

My teacher used to make me stay after school and wash all the desks in the room (I was a chronic doodler)........
This has gotten so out of hand.

To answer your question...probably not very long. Think about it, you can be charged with a sex crime for peeing in the woods now! There are a lot of laws that need to be re-written. Who knows where all of this is taking us!
