Recently, my 18 year old son went to court for a possession for the purposes of trafficking (P.P.T.) charge.
His mother and I have been divorced for the last three years; and she told me that the judge has put him on a curfew which requires him to be in the house between the hours of 10pm and 6am for one full year, and that the the police may check-up on him.
When she told me this I hit the roof. I wanted him to go to a "Scared Straight!" Program; but after some internet research, found that it could make the situation worse. I was wondering if there was any similar statistically backed research done on the effectiveness of curfews as was done on the Sacared Straight! Program?
