Folsom posed for the unfortunate mugshot above after being arrested in Richmond County, Georgia for how she chose to deal with her unruly teen son.
Apparently the single mom felt that her 13 year old needed a little bit of tough love, so when he repeatedly missed curfew, she locked him out of the house.
A Georgia woman is accused of locking her 13-year-old son out of the house overnight as punishment for missing his curfew, leaving him to sleep on the concrete patio in the backyard.
Antonia Folsom was arrested May 26 on a charge of deprivation of a minor, according to an incident report from the Richmond County Sheriff’s Office.
It’s unclear whether the young boy called authorities or if they were notified by neighbors, but according to the police report, Folsom’s son told a sheriff’s deputy that he had returned home after his 9 p.m. curfew the night before and found the doors locked.
His mother came to the door and told him she was tired of him coming home late and that he should find somewhere else to go, the teen told the deputy.
The teen’s 15-year-old brother gave him a pillow and blanket without their mother’s permission. The teen said he continued to knock on the door but got no response and had to sleep on the backyard patio.
Folsom left for work the next morning and told her older son not to let his brother inside, the report says.
A deputy spoke to Folsom around 3:15 p.m. that afternoon as she returned home from work.
She told the deputy that her son didn’t return home by curfew and that she didn’t know where he was. She said she hadn’t spoken to her son but did see him walking around in the yard the night before.
In a written statement, she said she saw her son kick a trash can around 11 p.m. the night before and told him to come inside but that he ignored her and left.
Due to her statements, Folsom was arrested and booked into the county jail. She was released at 6:30 a.m. May 28 after posting $1,300 bond and her children were turned over to their grandmother.
According to news reports, there are several moms who fully support Folsom and many are outraged that she was even arrested. Reactions vary, but most parents agree that sometimes a little bit of ‘tough love’ is necessary.
There are some bad azzz 13 year olds out there, so I refuse to cast judgement on this situation. Whatever the case, I bet ol boy won’t miss curfew no mo!
