House Arrest

Posted on Thu, Mar 3, 2011 at 4:00 AM

I was in court last week with a friend, and a young man came up before the judge. He had an application in front of the court to amend the conditions of his House Arrest. The young man was found guilty of break and enter and assault, as he pushed and kicked the old couple in the house he was breaking into, and he was placed on 12 months house arrest for his crimes. He wanted the judge to grant him permission to leave the house so he could go to the gym 3 to 5 times a week. He complained there was nothing for him to do at home and he was trying to stay motivated in this hard time! ARE YOU KIDDING ME?? Why should his feelings and considerations be taken into place? The court found him guilty and put a punishment in place... it shouldn't be made easier for him. What about the elderly couple who lost their sense of security in their own home? Is it just me or should his wishes be DENIED?! —JustJenn
