Check out the City News Service story in the Daily News on a Valley mother who gave her daughter (and her middle-school friends) a ride to terrorize some ex-friends. Hey, at least they weren't out walking in the unsafe city.
A Northridge mother pleaded guilty today to driving her daughter and two other girls to addresses in the San Fernando Valley, where the teens smeared feces, scrawled swastikas and wrote the word "Jew" on a home.
Catharine Whelpley, 43, entered her plea to one misdemeanor count of contributing to the delinquency of a minor and was ordered to complete one year of parenting classes and 80 hours of community service at Jewish Family Services, according to City Attorney Carmen A. Trutanich.
Prosecutors said that on April 3, Whelpley drove her 14-year-old daughter and friends -- ages 13 and 14 -- to a home that belonged to one of the teens' former middle-school friends. The girls threw toilet paper into the trees and on the property, poured maple syrup on the front porch and smeared human feces on the homeowner's vehicle.
After vandalizing the first property, Whelpley took the teens to buy more toilet paper, according to prosecutors. The mother then drove to the second victim's home, where the girls again threw toilet tissue over the property, smeared human feces on the porch and poured maple syrup on the homeowner's car.
