According to the Globe and Mail, "The 17-year-old Sikh who fabricated a story that he was attacked by five Caucasian men won't be charged." Instead, the article notes that "the young man will meet with his parents, the RCMP and Sikh community members to talk about the problem and possible punishments within the restorative justice program."
Aside from a discussion of charges and the boy's actual punishment, the article also comments on the reaction from the Sikh community to the entire incident:
The allegations set off a firestorm in the Sikh community, first with leaders demanding justice, and then insisting the teenager face charges for embarrassing his community.... A Sikh community leader [said,] "He should have the courage to speak to his parents and not put this community on the spot..... He should apologize, and he should get some help, but he needs some punishment to learn a lesson. He put everyone through hell."
