Group offers alternative to jailing parents for children’s crimes

Mar 2, 2018 by

In South Fulton, some people are trying to offer alternatives to a proposed law that could send parents to jail for up to 10 days if their children commit a crime.

The Saturday event from Let Us Make Man bills itself as an “alternative to locking parents up.” In addition to jail time after a child’s second offense, parents could be fined up to $100, according to the proposed legislation. For a first offense, parents and children would be offered access to diversion programs or other help. South Fulton city council is scheduled to vote on the ordinance March 20.
