Stolen Freddo: boy, 12, charged
FARAH FAROUQUENovember 16, 2009
AN ABORIGINAL boy, 12, will face a children's court today charged with receiving a stolen Freddo frog.
The chocolate frog, allegedly shoplifted by the child's friend from a Coles supermarket in regional Western Australia, usually sells for about 70 cents....
I have kept up with this and yes, it is pathetic when considering all aspects of the situation.
To think how some crimes here are worked off with community service. Is this child liable for a jail term possibly - certainly makes me wonder - the poor young boy.
Update ...Boy will go free
