When might it be a crime to be a parent? Well, a Marysville dad recently found out the answer to that curious question; in short, being a ‘cool dad’ may not always be the best choice. So what happened to get pops in hot water? He let his 14 year old son drive his car. Now, both dad and son will soon be facing misdemeanor criminal charges. The father, for allowing his minor son to drive. The son, for careening into a bus stop and injuring a family, a 60 year old woman and her one year old granddaughter. The son is expected to be charged with the crime of driving without a valid license (he is only 14 after all) and Negligent Driving Second Degree, a traffic infraction. What is the moral of this short story? Being a parent means just that, being a parent – cool or not, just be smart.
