Caught On Tape: Children Ride In Trunk Woman Gets No Jail Time
A Maryland woman caught driving with three small children in her trunk will not go to jail.
A Thurmont, Md., police officer pulled over Lanora Lucas last June.
A dashboard camera captured the children getting out of the trunk. Lucas told the officer the children had asked to ride there.
She was convicted in November of three counts of reckless endangerment.
If she completes 18 months of probation and community service, the conviction will be wiped from her record.
The kids in the trunk of Lucas' Volvo were her 9-year-old son, her 3-year-old daughter and her son's 8-year-old friend.
I saw this on the news in the pub last night. There was no sound or sub-text, so I had to guess what it was about. But reading the news, I don't get it. How can she be let off with only 18 months probation? Did I miss something in translation?
