His lawyer calls it a foolish prank, but a judge isn't laughing.
A 17-year-old high school student from Haddon Township admitted in family court Thursday that he defecated in a classmate's soda during an auto-shop class.
Prosecutors dropped an aggravated assault charge in exchange for the boy's guilty plea to a charge of tampering with a food product.
Authorities say the victim sipped the soda, then spit it out as his classmates laughed on March 29.
A judge ordered the boy to serve probation, serve 200 hours of community service, write a letter to the victim to apologize -- and to write a 1,000-word report on why it's unhealthy to ingest fecal matter.
