Proposed New Law in Louisiana

NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - When a juvenile is found guilty of a crime in Louisiana, a parent or guardian may soon be required to pay restitution to the victim.

It’s part of Senate Bill 370, authored by Sen. Jimmy Harris.

Under the bill, a parent or guardian would be required to be involved in the rehabilitation process after a juvenile is adjudicated for a crime.

I can hear it now, "What? You can't hold me responsible for my spawn's actions!!!!"

    it' won't happen. To many variables to considered under psychiatrist laws,Hell The jails are full of them already with no solutions for criminal activity to be eradicated in society under the present of our medical science as we know it.. A parole board is a crap-shoot already.Should they be held libel when they fail to be correct too in letting someone be free again to act in a free society.

    No easy fix, and complicated like @serf says. But a good 1st step would be to apply the law, implement a fair sentence, and actually make the offender serve the ENTIRE sentence. It blows my mind, get 30 years, 5 served, out early for "good behaviour" and then on parole.

    If they should get out early for following the prison rules, then maybe the sentence was too much to begin with. There should be no leniency for good behaviour, only MORE time for BAD behaviour.

    Juveniles are usually way WORSE than adults, because 99.9% of the time they KNOW they will be out by age 18.

    Our entire system needs revamping. Should punish actual criminals(fairly and COMPLETELY) and fine the idiots who break the law(ones that don't hurt/endanger others).

    the "kid " should have to work off what ever damage or cost he caused at min wage and actually have to work not just some BS job if nothing else making big rocks into little rocks end of the day been slacking and whining and not enough little rocks have been made at shift end well you dont eat

    I seem to recall parents were responsible for ther kids but about 15 years ago a co-Woker was away his kids had a party people showed up no one knew when they left so did several guns when they caught the kids no guns were found of course the courts ordered the "kids" to pay back 15 dollars a month until the guns were paid for. what a bunch of BS
