MONONA, Wis. (AP) - Parents of children who bully may be ticketed by police and fined in municipal court under a new local law in Monona.
Police Chief Wally Ostrenga says he expects the ordinance will be used sparingly and only in cases where parents are uncooperative. Ostrenga says sometimes parents don't want to talk to police because they may think their children can do no wrong.
The chief says parents who make a good-faith effort to address their child's behavior would not be ticketed. The State Journal says the first violation of the `parent liability' ordinance carries a $114 fine.20408312
