NAPERVILLE, Ill. (AP) -- A suburban Chicago 14-year-old faces hate crime and other charges for allegedly posting on Craigslist a picture of an African American classmate with the caption, "Slave for sale."

The white Naperville Central High School freshman appeared Wednesday in DuPage County juvenile court.

Assistant State's Attorney Lee Roupas said the youth took the photo last week while the two sat at the same lunch table.
