'Spring Break Court' gives kids, cops a break

(Continued)

Did the defendants learn any lessons from the Spring Break Court experience? That's hard to say. The News Herald's Calhoun interviewed a few, and none of them seemed to show any remorse:

One said she was underage and holding a beer for a friend when the police charged her with possession.

Another said he was with a group of people, one of whom was drunk and started acting out in a gas station. By chance, he, the only member of the group who was underage, happened to be holding the case of beer they were buying and he took the possession charge, he said.

I guess "blame it on an unnamed friend" is a valuable life lesson after all. Yeah! Spring Break!
