Mom accused of helping son find robbery victim
MADISON, Wis. - A mother has been charged with helping her 13-year-old son search for someone to rob.
The boy told police his mother, Janine C. Lewis, drove him around Stoughton Tuesday night, helping him look for someone to rob, according to a criminal complaint filed Friday in Dane County Circuit Court.
The boy told police he had talked to her about committing robberies, but she discouraged him. Still, he said she agreed to drive him around to look for a victim, the complaint said.
They found a man at a car wash. She asked him if he really wanted to go through with it. He said he did, and she told him to be careful, the complaint said.
The boy approached the man with a gun and demanded money, he told police.
But the would-be victim realized the boy's gun was actually a BB gun. He knocked it out of the boy's hand, chased him down and held him until police arrived.
A woman later identified as Lewis asked the boy as he was being arrested, "What were you doing?"
"I needed some money," the boy said, according to the complaint.
Officers tracked down Lewis at her home, where she gave officers a false name, according to the complaint. She also said she did not know her son was committing the robbery or that he had a gun, the complaint said. She also said she only happened by chance to be in the area when the robbery occurred, according to the complaint.
She later acknowledged she helped her son commit the robbery, saying she told him it was something they could do together, according to the complaint.
Lewis, 36, of Stoughton, faces one count of contributing to the delinquency of a child and a count of attempted armed robbery, both felonies. She also faces a misdemeanor count of resisting an officer.
She was released on a signature bond after a court appearance Friday and was ordered not to have any contact with her son.
The boy is being prosecuted in juvenile court. He is being held in the juvenile jail on the juvenile equivalent of an armed robbery charge.

Dumb. Ass. I read this story to my wife and she matched it with one from work. During a talk with one of the kids mothers the kids crime (selling sched.II on the street, carrying a gun, armed robbery,etc.), mother stated she was okay with crimes because she couldn't work and he was providing for the family.And Shepards we shall be,
for thee, My Lord, for thee,
Power hath descended forth from Thy hand,
That our feet may swiftly carry out Thy Command.
So we shall flow a river forth to Thee
And teeming with souls will it ever be.

Ignorance breeds ignorance. Why can't people just teach their kids to do the right thing?
