Hawaii man gets probation for making kid walk mile

By Associated Press

LIHUE, Hawaii (AP) A judge sentenced a Hawaii man to one year of probation and a $200 fine for making his son walk a mile home from school as a form of discipline.

The Garden Island newspaper reports that Judge Kathleen Watanabe called the punishment "old-school" and no longer appropriate.

Robert Demond of Kilauea (kih-luh-WAY'-uh) said he picked up his son from school and asked about a matter that had been brought to his attention. When the son didn't respond, Demond made him walk home to think about his actions.

The age of the boy is unclear.

Demond was also ordered to attend a parenting class after being convicted of endangering the welfare of a minor, a misdemeanor. Demond pleaded no contest and said he would handle the situation differently now.
