    So she accepts money, spends it on something else, tells people she is still going to school when she's not, then... when it's time for graduation, she tries to stop the ceremony.... (because she won't be receiving an award--as I'm sure she's told people that she will be) by phoning in a bomb threat?

    *She accepted the money
    *She spent it on something else
    *She lied about going to school
    *She lied about getting an award
    *She terrified people and wasted time and money on emergency services

    Yep... sounds like the parents fault to me.... :glare:

    Girl.... sort your sh1t out.

    Shea made the dean’s list in spring 2012, posting a grade point average of at least 3.5, but was last enrolled in May 2013, when she had enough credits for sophomore standing, Quinnipiac spokesman John Morgan said. That meant she appeared to be behind her matriculating class.

    Shea had no disciplinary or academic issues, but left school for financial reasons, according to the police spokesman. She told investigators that she had trouble registering for classes at the beginning of this academic year “due to a delinquent balance.” Instead of telling her mother, she tried unsuccessfully to handle the situation herself, according to police.

    She allowed an incident of "delinquent balance" (which she probably caused to herself by spending) to snowball into a criminal issue. Sounds like she needs to learn some "life lessons". Cause and effect. Consequences she'll now need to face.

    To me it sounds like she should be prosecuted. I'm not much for making excuses for people making bomb threats. And the reason she did was logical, weird admittedly but still. It is more about refusing to face consequences of ones own actions. ( and, seemingly, to scare and making other people uncomfortable doesn't semm to bother her.

    She should be prosecuted for making bomb threats as well as for embezzlement for taking the money for tuition from her parents and spending it on something else.

    People need to be held accountable for their actions. Too much codling by parents and society as a whole. It's always someone else's fault. What a load of crap.

    "Some feel the young woman being immature and not having coping skills." I pick this to define the problem. I'd be interested to learn what "difficulties" had interfered with her being able to attend school her final year, though I assume they weren't issues defendable by her sponsors or she would've gotten their support about them. I feel she needs to be prosecuted, held responsible, though not severely.
