Spoiler, I hear ya. I wanted him to spend some time in county...my wife was a wreck though. She agrees with me to an extent, but she was worried sick that he will get 'physically vandalized'. He weighs about 110 lbs soaking wet...and he's Severely White for a white boy in El Paso. I would have loved for him to learn a lesson, but not at the risk of him being raped or beat down. It's looking like he will have probation for 2 to 3 years plus fines. With any luck, he has learned his lesson....he only has ONE get out of jail free card...and its been used.
I assure you, IF it happens again.....things will be VERY different on my behalf. I'll always love the boy, but things will change if this ever happens again.
***As a matter of fact, I'm gonna have him read this thread and the other thread, so if you guys have any advice, please let me(him) know. His name is Curtis.
