The theft of a goodie is leaving a sour taste in the mouth of one Iowa mom.

Mason City High School student Trey Richey is being charged with stealing brownies from the school cafeteria.

Mom, Jan Richey, says the charges are a little extreme.

She says a few days or maybe a week of detention would be more appropriate for her 15-year-old.

But the school isn't backing down over the brownie bust.

One official says they're pressing charges to teach students a lesson.
