A 7 Year Old Boy Now Faces TWO FELONY CHARGES For A BB Gun Accident

Kids do dumb things. It’s part of being a kid. Little Sam Grant could tell you all about that. The seven year old was firing his BB gun at an abandoned house across the street. Unfortunately, Grant hit two cars that were driving between him and the house.
After finding out that her son had hit a car, his mother talked to the driver and called the police, “The officer told me he didn’t want to charge my son. The lady told me she didn’t want him charged and the next thing I know, I’m getting a letter from DPS saying he’s being charged with two felonies.”

Now, the seven year old may face probation, hundreds of hours of community service and the felonies could remain on his record until he’s 16.

another bs charge by another over zealous prosecutor. Could that be one of the reasons people are killing these types of people nowadays? No sense of fair play or common sense. Just another conviction feather in their pointed caps.

I agree that the child shouldn't be charged. However, if this child wasn't supervised while firing the BB gun, the parents should be charged. I know it's still "only" a BB gun, but people could be injured. This child could have shot himself if he wasn't properly supervised.

more of these bone headed bureaucrats need to go one way or another!

Anonymous said... are so right..a 7 year old child should never be left unattended with a bb gun..a cap gun, water gun, nerf gun, water gun..yes, but not a bb gun...they even make marshmallow's can cause damage and injury. Charge the parents for leaving the child alone if you are going to charge anyone.
