Easy Now.....You mean to tell me nobody here ever did anything wrong like cheating on a math test. How about progressive punishment. If this was the first time, have a talk with here and a mild punishment, with the understanding if it happens again the punishment will become more severe. If you blast the kid out of the water on the first mistake, whats left if it happens again? firing squad? Kids do stupid things, hell, adults do stupid things, make here aware her behavior will not be tollerated and there are consequences for your actions.

But we didn't get caught, that's the difference.
Give her a parent to kid talking too, then let it go. It's not that big a deal. We all did it, ..........and survived.

Just think about this, she can learn it now or you can pay for her to learn it in college.

Take away some convenience items and the silent treatment, should work fine, after you tell her how upset you are.

Worked on my 3 sisters when I was growing up.

Cool

You're working on the wrong person! You and your wife have to get on the same page first. IF you ever agree on how to handle it, then talk to the kid. If not, forget it...
