From a policy perspective, almost certainly the first incident of plagiarism will get written into the student's permanent record, and a second offence will get a student expelled. From a personal perspective, when your teacher discovers plagiarism (and they almost always do), it not only affects the grade on an essay, but the school's policies once set in motion are always very embarrassing.
