Ok, it’s been a moment since I’ve talked about Halloween, but I’m BACK!
When I was a tot, in middle school, one of the “fun” things to do was go trick-or-treating. Looking back now, we were probably a bit old for it at that point, but hey, we were well behaved and it was fun for us.
Well, it turns out there are some towns that will ARREST trick-or-treaters that are older than 12!
One of those towns is Chesapeake, Virginia. They’ve got a statute that says anyone over 12 who goes trick-or-treating can be charged with a misdemeanor that carries up to a $100 fine . . . and SIX MONTHS in jail. A MISDEMEANOR? I’m actually not up on my legal terms, but it sounds bad! Plus, SIX months in jail is not exactly a short amount of time for a 12 -YEAR-OLD!
