I was talking to my therapist about everything going on with difficult child. He's really great because he worked with the drug court and does DUI classes so he knows a lot about SA, etc. He told me that the local courts here often asked teenagers/young adults to wear wires and make drug buys in exchange for dropped charges, reduced sentences, etc. That really surprised me. I grew up in a time when police recruits would pretend to be students, etc. I haven't ever heard of them actually using young, likely addicted kids to do this. Is it common in other areas? The whole thing seems fishy to me.
