A 13 year old from Texas who stole his Dad's credit card and ordered two hookers from an escort agency, has today been convicted of fraud and given a three year community order.
Ralph Hardy, a 13 year old from Newark, Texas confessed to ordering an extra credit card from his father's existing credit card company, and took his friends on a $30,000 spending spree, culminating in playing "Halo" on an Xbox with a couple of hookers in a Texas motel.
The credit card company involved said it was regular practice to send extra credit cards out as long as all security questions are answered.
The escort girls who were released without charge, told the arresting officers something was up when the kids said they would rather play Xbox than get down to business.
Police said they were alerted to the motel by a concerned delivery clerk, whom after delivering supplies of Dr Pepper, Fritos and Oreos had been asked by the kids where they could score some chicks and were willing to pay. They explained they had just made a big score at a "World of Warcraft" tournament and wanted to get some relaxation. On noting the boys age the delivery clerk informed the authorities.
When police arrived at the motel they found $3,000 in cash, numerous electronic gadgets, an Xbox video console with numerous games, and the two local escort girls.
Ralph had reportedly told police that his father wouldn't mind, as it was his birthday last week and he had forgot to get him a present. The father, a lawyer said he had been too busy, but would take him on a surprise trip to Disneyland instead.
Asked why he ordered two escorts, Ralph said he thought it was the thing to do when you win a "World of Warcraft" tournament. They told the suspicious working girls they were people of restricted growth working with a traveling circus, and as State law does not allow those with disabilities to be discriminated against they had no right to refuse them.
The $1,000 a night girls sensing something up played "Halo" on the Xbox with the kids, instead of selling their sexual services.
Ralph's ambition is to one day become a politician.
Most 13-year olds aren’t that hazy on the concept. Nice dodge, kid.
This sounds like a cheap tween movie! I mean, he ordered Dr. Pepper, Fritos, and Oreo, and then played a video game with the ladies? LOL
“Ralph had reportedly told police that his father wouldn’t mind, as it was his birthday last week and he had forgot to get him a present. The father, a lawyer said he had been too busy, but would take him on a surprise trip to Disneyland instead.”
This is the tip of the iceberg for this kid getting into trouble.....Dad is too busy to remember his birthday so I guess he is too busy to be a dad.....shame on Dad and now he is rewarding this kid with a trip to Disney.....wow....this kid needs a better parent before it is too late
My first thought before reading the above line was that these kids had been watching way too much CSPAN, and learned too much from congress!
My Dear Madams, may we cast some light on your tax records? As well as those of your pimp........
If Dad is rewarding his kid for behavior like that at that age, it's already too late. Look out DemocRats, here comes your POTUS nominee for 2032.....and, he's from Texas....
They told the suspicious working girls they were people of restricted growth working with a traveling circus, and as State law does not allow those with disabilities to be discriminated against they had no right to refuse them.
Got to give it to them for creativity.
He want’s to be a polititian?
Hillery! look out!
That's just funny.
You gotta love this kid!
“Ralph’s ambition is to one day become a politician.”
You’re on your way kid!
I wonder if his middle name is “Jefferson”.
Psst. Hollywood writers. See how creative real life is? That’s why you can’t sell tickets.

These kids sure know how the world works.
