Georgia Teen Grounded

"Georgia woman accused of locking out son for missing curfew" Associated Press  June 04, 2015

AUGUSTA, Ga. — 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.

Folsom didn’t immediately return a phone message left Wednesday at the number listed for her in the 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.
