Correctional strategy for Xander
Since he will soon seize being a juvenile and his previous history of criminal records and gang involvement, he requires a harsher handling.

This can be followed by a probation supervision as well as doing a few community service work.
This is meant to make him realize his mistakes and get of the streets for his mothers sake
