A Texas woman was not getting along with her boyfriend's teenage son. She came up with a plan to get the teenage boy into trouble at school.

Heather Hodges, 26 who has two young kids of her own, placed a gun in the teen’s backpack and then sent him to school. The boy attends the Magnolia Junior High School outside Houston, Texas. Hodges then called the school and warned them that the 13-year-old boy had a gun.

She identified the child by name. Security guards at the school found the 9 mm pistol in the boy’s backpack. When questioned, the boy was totally shocked when he was told that the gun was found in his possession. He had no idea how it got there.

Police were called to the school were they traced the call back to a convenience store payphone. Security cameras caught Hodges at the payphone making the call. Hodges was arrested.

She doesn’t look very guilty, if you ask me…

The kid was clued in to this crazy dame. He proved to be an excellent judge of character.

I am surprised the police went to such lenghts to find the guilty party here. I guess they had prior experience with what psycho women are capable of. Probably were in divorce procedings once or twice to learn that lesson.

They need to be HOT for a chance to be innocent.

Guilty as charged.

Perhaps the boy’s clueless father will also have learned something through this experience. He must be a real loser to have such an ugly woman as a “girlfriend.” Unfortunately, she has two small children....by different fathers, I’d wager.

3 years ago my soon to be divorced friend was going through a “testy” point in his marriage and discovered, thank God, that his soon to be ex had hidden his loaded .38 in his carry on when he was flying down to see his parents in Florida.

One in a million he found it, spilled his coffee and changed his shirt in the car discovering it. She denied it of course, but he knew it didn’t jump from his nightstand to his carry on by itself.

True story:

About ten years ago, I was packing for a business trip and, by chance, checked an unused compartment on my boarding luggage. Inside, I found a .22 revolver.

WTF?
So, I asked my wife and she said she got it from her Grandmother during her last visti up-state. It was her Grandfathers and she thought I might like it, but never thought to tell me it was in my suitcase.

Close call, but I’m still not sure it was an accident.

Good luck. If it gets to the point where you’re checking your car trunk for dead bodies, you might want to rethink it.

Hmmmm.... Perhaps you should do what my friend did and quietly change the beneficiary on your life insurance policy too.

He found the policy had been moved out of its normal file one day and knew she was looking at it. Didn’t think a thing of it until after he filed. but by then he was paranoid anyway.

Sam Kinison Trivia:

Sam was arrested at an airport for having a loaded gun in his luggage, which was placed there by a vengeful girlfriend to whom he had previously confessed that he was having an affair, before leaving for the flight.

I think in his HBO special he said it was his then-wife. I don't recall him saying it was after he told her he was cheating on her, though.

Still luv'ya, honey...

LOL.

I travel a lot for business, and usually I have to take some noob out on the road.

Whenever I pick up a rental car, I open the trunk and look inside right away.

“What are you doing?”, the noob always asks.

“Checking for dead hookers. You never know.”

She tried to frame this kid for bringing a gun to a school, which is a felony.

First, behold what things gun control laws can be used for. (I.e. the police aren't the only people given power by bad laws.) Sort of like how the carry-on baggage of innocent people in Singapore can be slipped some drugs at an airport, and then the travelers subsequently face the death penalty when they are found.

Second, she should be charged for the crime she was framing him for, because he could have been jailed for a long time, not to mention forever losing his gun ownership rights. I think putting all those consequences back on her is only fair.

Third, think of how lucky this kid is that it happened in TX. In how many other jurisdictions (MA, CT, IL, CA, MD, NJ, MD, NY ... ) would the police have just arrested the kid, assuming he was guilty as charged, and without bothering to trace the call and pull the surveillance tape? I have to congratulate the police here for bothering to have the wherewithal needed to discover this ruse.

“Checking for dead hookers. You never know.”

If a crime drama/comedy movie hasn’t already started out like that, it should. With a dead hooker actually in the trunk.

Several years ago a stolen car, engine still running, was dumped in front of my house. First thing I did was go knock on the trunk to see if anyone was in there.

Whoever tries to frame an innocent person should get three times the maximum sentence, imho.
