Juvie Jail Stay Backfires: Jailhouse Rocks, Mom Gets Bill

A harried Michigan mom thought that life behind bars would be just the thing for her unruly 15 year old, but it didn't work out that way.  "He was in bed all day in his pajamas. He loved it. He bragged about all these new movies he saw. I thought it would be more like a jail atmosphere. I thought he'd get a taste of it and wouldn't want to go back."  Meanwhile, the county bills parents $155 per day--more than mom earns--and Junior was in the resort for a month.  Story here.
