Mr Berghouse never denied that his son cheated, and told that the sophomore is contrite.

Well as long as he is contrite and all.

'He knows it's wrong,' he said. 'You cannot imagine the mental and emotional penalty that has been inflicted upon him.'

The poor feller sure sounds like he's suffered enough. I bet an ice cream cone would cheer him up, Dad.
Hey... extra sprinkles, huh? he's had a hard day.

My favorite case of cheating in my short career as a teacher so far:

We're reading Huck Finn. A student turns in three of the assigned summaries at one time, several weeks late. Two of them are about Huck Finn, but obviously not in this student's own words, and I quickly find them on the Internet by using Google.

The third one, though? It starts talking about Gandalf, Frodo, and Samwise, and is also copied from the Internet. How does that even happen?

Silly me. I thought reading comprehension was one aspect of higher grades, you know, like the ones you get to qualify for honors programs. Sucks to be you, kid.

Are you familiar with the GOP?

The student's father, Jack Berghouse, and his wife filed a lawsuit last week against the school district claiming their son's due process rights were violated.

Due process rights? If schools are treated legally in the UK the way they are treated in the U.S., then you don't get due process rights. You get whatever the school decides.
