Boy, my old home county is getting pretty rough. I was raised in Worthington and never seen that go on before.

Are they looking into the parents? Since the girls said there was drug use and violence, it might be a good idea to look into that. I mean, if there was things going on, it would give credit to thier motive. If not, well then, maybe sending them to a girls school is not such a bad thing after all, they can have the chance to change there.

What a response by the father. Drug use and violence in the home, but the kids need to be punished. Sounds like the parents need some punishment too.

There is soooo much that is not in print. These girls are far from even being close to "normal" -- These little country girls have issues. I know of these people.

With the allegations made by the girls Im sure there was a full investigation into the home life. Considering the sentence one or both of these girls reported false allegations in an attempt to save face.

I adopted a child who became a troubled teen. The stories she told about myself should have me buried under a prison. Her allegations of course were very false and were used for her own self pity party for the trouble she had gotten into.

Considering the sentence these girls must have a lengthy legal history with the system.

Another cry for help ignored and the girls are punished instead. Other students should learn from this example and let it build up inside.

I agree that not everything is being heard here (but then again when is it). I am hoping that there are other facts that determined that the girls needed girl school as a punishment. I also think that the parents need to be held financially responsible because they play a large role in whatever is wrong with those girls. At 16, there has to be some messed up stuff going on that makes them feel a bomb threat is necesary in order to shed some light on the problems in their lives.
Take a deeper look system. When they do get out, make sure you address the real problem here - their home life.

This whole situation is very sad. Perhaps there is more to it, but it seems like the girls could be disciplined and treated with some compassion for their situation. Is it any wonder the girls have poor judgment with parents like that?

None of know if these girls are telling the truth about their home life, but I hope there will be an investigation to determine if what they are saying is true. From the fathers comment he sounds like he is lacking in the parenting department.

Finally, a judge with a pair. This would never happen in Marion Co. Thanks to the Greene Co. judge!

And just what is he supposed to say.

"O PLEASE DON'T TAKE MY HOT LITTLE GIRLS FROM ME, I NEED THEM LATE AT NIGHT WHEN THERE MOM'S NOT HOME. I NEED THEM TO PICK UP MY 'STUFF' FOR ME"

They are liars. KIDS LIE TO GET OUT OF TROUBLE. It’s what kids do...

They need to be punished. With all the out of control kids now days.

Good Job judge. It’s about time someone gets tuff on these brats.

those girls need to be in counsling or therapy. If there parents were doing drugs and they were open to violence they need to be looked at by the state.

From the superintendent of the Greene County school corporation:

But Sichting also noted his discontent.

"It's not enjoyable. We've got two young ladies that I'm not happy about their circumstances. I got into education because of kids and to help kids ... in my opinion the system failed these two young ladies," he explained.

The young ladies were crying out for help, he said.

"The cries weren't heard or nothing could be done about the cries legally I guess," he said. "I've e-mailed the teachers and staff. I think it's important to keep these two young ladies in our thoughts and prayers."

I agree. You see real criminals get less. Was a home study done? Anyone bother to verify if there was drug usage at home or reason for concern. The girls do need to be punished for what they did but sounds like there are bigger issues that should be taken care of.

Honestly I doubt a full investigation was done. You would think there would be one but until you have witnessed how the justice system fails you wouldn't realize what really takes place with court cases.
