Mother Charged With Lacing Cookies With Ex-Lax
A woman from New Portland is charged with helping
her daughter and two other teenagers bake cookies
laced with a laxative.
SKOWHEGAN, Maine (AP) -- The cookies were left
on the teacher's desk on April tenth.
Julie Hunt, who's 43, was arrested Friday after
an investigation into the prank that sickened
four seventh- and eighth-grade children at
Carrabec Community School in Anson.
A police affidavit filed in court indicates
Hunt told three girls how to crush the laxative
pills and mix them in with the cookie batter.
Note to Ms. Hunt: Your daughter needs a mother, not another "friend." Being a mother is a job for an adult, not a 43 year old adolescent. We have too many "cool" moms in this country, and not enough good ones. So grow the hell up already.
