Unfortunately, you committed an offence and it is possible that you will be charged.

At the same time given the facts and that you have shown remorse they may just give you a warning.

There is no reason for them to withhold the passport as this is for your son and he didn't do anything wrong of course.

So you will have to wait and see what happens but they may let this go.
