Opinion on Bad Boy Scout

I have been advised by a SMA that one of my Scouts was caught stealing from
another Scout. This did not occur during Scouting. Rather, he broke in a home
and stole the property, but was later caught with the property on his person.
The boy admits he did wrong. He has demonstrated other behavior problems in
The SMAs want him out of the Troop. They are concerned about trust as well as
the concerns of other parents.
I suggested keeping him, but allowing him to meetings only for the next few
months. We can observe his behavior and evaluate future involvement, but at
least keep the tie in hopes of his behavior improving in the future.
Any comments from the net?
