When I was a teenager in 1972 my friends and I stole some
When I was a teenager in 1972 my friends and I stole some items from a local school in Illinois. The items were a typewriter, a couple of cassette players, some cassettes and a fire extinguisher. The items would have been worth about $100-150 in 1972 dollars.Now some 42 years later I feel guilty and compelled to make restitution. I wrote a letter to the school district confessing to the theft and sending them a check for $2,000 as a donation. But I haven't sent it yet!Are there any legal ramifications to confessing a crime that took place over 40 years ago? I want to send the letter and donation but wonder what the risks (if any) may be to confessing a crime in writing. Thanks!

I had a 3 month old son that had passed away in 19990, the case had initially been ruled as a SIDS death. I was the only person that witnessed the events that took place, prior to me finding my son deceased, and i knew he did not die from SIDS. I recently found corroborating evidence to what happened the night i found my son, and it was testimony of people who had heard the person stating they had killed my son, and should have done so to rest of their own children. I have notified authorities on all this, and they are now looking into it.I requested for a full copy of the police file, so that i could look over the information and pursue a private investigation on this matter. All that police said was in my child's police folder was an autopsy report. I obtained a copy of thee autopsy report, and was told there was no photographs, police report, statements or anything other than the autopsy report. From what I understand, there was medical lab reports of tissue samples that had been sent out but never received to complete the full determination of death of my son. Police are now just trying to find those other medical records! As one might believe, i am extremely pissed on this whole thing now, cause in the autopsy report, the hemorrhaging, in two areas clearly showed that he died from TRAUMA, yet nothing was done about it, no investigation, not even a simple police report!!! There is no way any of this should have taken place either by the killer, and then later by police and medical personnel that had the evidence in the autopsy report to show my son did not die of SIDS!!I am contacted the State Attorney Generals office, and the United States Senators Office and spoke to each of these departments on the phone, in forming them that i refuse to put my sons name back into silence, and want this all exposed and new laws mandated in his name, to protect children from suffering the same or similar miscarriages of Justice. This was a premeditated FIRST DEGREE MURDER, of a innocent 3 month old. This person has been allowed to walk free and brag about it, and police and medical had allowed this to go on, by straight negligence and if it had been any other person, they would probably be charged with accessory, since the medical records showed it was not SIDS and was in fact murder, but did nothing to pursue, and did nothing to properly inform the right authorities, for what it was!I am looking for some major home hitting laws, to be placed in my sons honor, one in which i would like to pursue a fight to make child murders pursued under Federal offences, and punishable under a federal crime when they are murdered without reason, such as in my sons case. I know this is going to be a major change to fight for, but enough is enough, and this is a case that definitely calls for a death penalty action, if you hear it all. There was no medical issue here and it was nothing more than pure EVIL!What i am looking for I guess, is answers on how i can pursue the state laws to be turned over to Federal laws, when it comes to murder of innocent children. If you kidnap a child or adult and take them across State lines, that is Federal Crime, and if you kill anyone on the Native American Reservations, that is a Federal Crime, so why isn't our underage innocent children protected from Murder under Federal Laws 100 percent of the time??? Especially when it comes to the point when they cant even run, in a attempt to protect themselves in that of the simplest ways??? I would ask for any help you can provide me, and would ask if someone might be interested in pursuing changes in laws with me on this, by providing counsel, this would be much appreciated. If there is anything i could do to hold the State of Minnesota accountable for their own negligence, that would be help full also.Sincerely,Thunder
