Parent Arrested for Taking Daughter’s Cell Phone
A Grand Prairie, Texas father discovered a text he thought was rude and undesirable on his 12-year-old daughter's cell phone. However, the child's mother balked at his action and called authorities. When authorities appeared at his door and requested the iPhone 4, the father refused.
The father indicated that police shouldn't interfere with his ability to parent his child.
Ironically, after three months of refusing to return the phone, he got a citation in the mail for theft of property. The father hired a lawyer and requested a jury trial. After jury deliberation, the father was found not guilty citing insufficient evidence to prove the theft of property charge.
This is a clear warning to all parents that you should be prepared for the consequences of your action of discipling your children.
