Ashton Kutcher

12-Year-Old Swatter

Yup, I Did It

The 12-year-old who "swatted" Ashton Kutcher has admitted he did the deed ... and now he will be a very young felon.

The kid in question admitted to two felony counts in connection with "swatting" pranks against Ashton and a bank. Specifically he admitted to making a false report in an emergency and computer intrusion.

As TMZ previously reported ... the kid made a crank 911 call last year, claiming there were people inside Ashton's home with guns and explosives and that several people had been shot. Cops stormed in, only to find it was a hoax.

The kid was also charged with "swatting" Justin Bieber -- but did not admit to that count -- and a rep for the D.A. tells us, the charge will likely be dismissed when the boy is sentenced.

The 12-year-old was returned to his parents today and will face a judge for sentencing soon.

The judge has complete discretion over the punishment -- and can even order the kid to serve out his time at home or in a group facility.

This kid is clearly high IQ, and is clearly bored. He needs people who keep his mind occupied with more productive things.

Could be a cover up. Interrogation pressure can make you say things you never did.

1 Year house arrest for each count he's convicted of (no leniency on the sentence, he can go to school via online or tutor), where this minor is to be supervised at all times by either a parent or someone the parole officer approves of. This kid has already wasted many tax dollars so he doesn't need to be in an institution, and he also obviously NEEDS 24/7 supervision. Now, if any incident happens coming from his phone number then it will be 5 years for any future offenses. People think this is no big deal, but if a tragedy had happened somewhere else in the city where the SWAT team had been needed, this kid could have cost people their lives. A CLEAR message needs to be sent to all who think this kind of thing is funny.

Surely they won't record the conviction if he exercises good behaviour?

When I was 12, I tried desperately to get Cheryl Ladds phone number. It was in the phone book or 411. I could have used this kid
