Couple Who Locked Boy In Trunk Avoid Prison.

H/T Drudge. Of course.

SAN DIEGO -- A judge in a downtown courtroom sentenced a couple to probation Wednesday for locking the woman's son in the trunk of their car while they celebrated her birthday in a bar.

Sarah Marie Powell, 27, locked her 7-year-old son in the trunk while she and her boyfriend, Jake Faria, 31, celebrated her birthday Aug. 23 inside Winston's Beach Club in Ocean Beach.
Perhaps it's just me, but I don't see the big deal here. Where else were they going to put the kid? They couldn't have taken him inside the *bar*; that's illegal, duhhh.

Police received an anonymous tip in August that a child was locked in the trunk of her Volvo.
A Volvo, eh? Well, at least he was safe.

A dog was in the car's passenger seat when officer's arrived.
Because you couldn't possibly put a dog in a trunk; that would be cruel.

The boy told police he had been put in the trunk about 10 other times.
And obviously the boy still hadn't learned his lesson: never talk about the times you go into the trunk.

Geez, what's wrong with these kids today?
