    PA - Boy who was found chained to a bed is arrested the next day

    Woah! This should certainly help bolster the defense for his father! Not that it was right of him to chain the kid down...but it does show the father wasn't lying to LE. Sounds like juvie is the right place for this troubled kid.

    Maybe the kid is troubled because of other abuse from the father. Maybe it will all come out now.

    While that could be, Deb...it will hopefully all come out. The kid could just be a "bad seed" and starting out running with the wrong crowd as happens in so many cases.

    Maybe this is exactly what will turn his life around in so many ways. : )

    I hope so. He's young enough, and has enough years of brain development ahead of him, that some intervention and maybe therapy could make a huge difference in how he turns out.

    The father is still charged with unlawful restraint even though the boy was arrested the next day. There's no mention of how far the dad went in trying to get the boy help, if he was troubled for years, etc. I think being chained to a bed is enough to make even a normal adult go berserk and try to find some way to get away before the person doing it gets out of jail and returns home. Surely the boy won't be returned to the father later and will get at least some help, hopefully.
