Hot on HuffPost Parents:
To Bail or Not to Bail
Filed under: Opinions
Now mom is trying to decide whether to let him sit in jail until his trial date or bail him out. She's admits that it is hard to see her son behind bars, but worries that by bailing him out she might be minimizing the seriousness of his crime. "Despite realizing that it's not really that uncommon of a thing for someone his age to be out drinking and partying some, I couldn't overlook the fact that he made a conscious decision to drive drunk," she says.
Almost unanimously, Cafe Mom readers agree that if he was big enough to do the crime, then he's big enough to do the time. But then again, it's easy to talk tough when it's not your kid, isn't it?
