Man Fined, Given Probation For Making Son Walk 1 Mile Home From School

by Mike Mathers

A Hawaii man was sentenced to a year of probation and a $200 fine for making his son walk one mile home from school as punishment. Robert Demond picked his 8 year old, and asked about a matter that had come to his attention and the son didn't respond. Demond stopped the car and told his son to walk the remaining mile to their house. Demon ended up being found guilty of a misdemeanor charge of second-degree endangering the welfare of a minor. Demond also has to take child parenting classes.

Do you agree with this punishment or should it have been something less?
