difficult child received a sentence of 72 hours of community service to be completed prior to her court date on March 7. She also has to attend a theft lecture put on by one of the courts. We impressed upon her that she had to schedule the class and community service quickly because 72 hours was a lot of time and she had less than three months to do it and would lose some time over the holidays. She was given a list of places she could go but only about 3 took theft cases so she couldn't even work the food pantries. I was disappointed because I would have liked to see her feed the homeless so she got to experience what it was like. So she attended her theft class last night and is on her way today to work 8 hours in a thrift store run by a ministry. I am encouraged that she didn't just let this go and seems committed to completing it. 72 hours is a lot of hours, she will be a busy girl with her job over the next few months.
