AUGUSTA, Ga. (AP) — A Georgia woman is accused of locking her 13-year-old son out of the house overnight as punishment for missing his curfew, leaving him to sleep on the concrete patio in the backyard.

Antonia Folsom was arrested May 26 on a charge of deprivation of a minor, according to an incident report from the Richmond County Sheriff’s Office.

Folsom didn’t immediately return a phone message left Wednesday at the number listed for her in the report.

Folsom’s son told a sheriff’s deputy that he had returned home after his 9 p.m. curfew the night before and found the doors locked. His mother came to the door and told him she was tired of him coming home late and that he should find somewhere else to go, the teen told the deputy.

The teen’s 15-year-old brother gave him a pillow and blanket without their mother’s permission. The teen said he continued to knock on the door but got no response and had to sleep on the backyard patio.

Folsom left for work the next morning and told her older son not to let his brother inside, the report says.

The deputy spoke to Folsom that day when she returned home at about 3:15 p.m. She told the deputy that her son didn’t return home by curfew and that she didn’t know where he was. She said she hadn’t spoken to her son but did see him walking around in the yard the night before.

In a written statement, she said she saw her son kick a trash can around 11 p.m. the night before and told him to come inside but that he ignored her and left.

Folsom was arrested and booked into the county jail. She was released at 6:30 a.m. May 28 after posting $1,300 bond.

Folsom’s children were turned over to their grandmother.

    Abuse of the law. That little brat thinks he has the police in his back pocket. He’ll encounter them when he’s older and run to his mama for help.

  2. What? No Mother Of The Year title? No crown funding account? No interviews? No Hero Baby Mama status? Next time she should slap him around, call him a few mfs, make sure there’s a crowd with cameras and wait for Oprah to call. Instead, she winds up in jail. Bummer.

    Arrested for making her son sleep in the backyard, please. So the mom goes to jail and possibly lose the job that pays the mortgage/rent? This brat should have brought his butt home before curfew I’m sure she is fed up with him disregarding the rules. The older brother managed to get home on time.

  4. I know a lot of people still punish their children this way but it is outdated. What lesson was she trying to teach him? If I was his mother I would’ve been upset that he didn’t meet his curfew but I would’ve been more happy to know that he was safe and sound INSIDE his home. Taking away some privilege or electronic gadget that he liked would’ve punishment enough. No one should keep quiet and do nothing about the mistreatment of children, even by a parent.
