Teen sentenced in robbing of mayor's son won't face other charges

Zach Emanuel, 17, was jumped from behind by two men who stole his cell phone on December 19.

The teen who plead guilty to robbing Mayor Rahm Emanuel's son won't face any other charges, police said.

Prosecutors dropped the obstructing identity case against the teen after officers say he gave them a fake name during the initial investigation.

The attack on the mayor's son happened while the teen was 17, so he faced charges in juvenile court. He's now 18.

A judge sentenced him to three years of probation and 50 hours of community service.
