Mother Sells Nintendo Wii Her Son Stole, Now Arrested

Three teens swiped a neighbors Wii and enlisted the help of a mother to pawn the stolen loot.

Joshua Carter (18), Patrick Early (16) and Derrick Henson (13) have all been arrested on felony charges for stealing a neighbor's Wii. According to Early, his mother, 41-year-old Maxine Law, helped them unload the console at a local pawn shop — even though she knew it was stolen.


The Florida state attorney's office is looking into the matter, and Orlando's WFTV reports that it is possible that Maxine Law could be charged with dealing in stolen property and contributing to the delinquency of minors. You'd think that someone named Law would know better.
