Parents of Balloon Boy receive their sentence

Richard Heene is going to have to serve 90 days -- 30 in jail and 60 in a work-release program. Mayumi Heene has 20 days in jail. Prosecutors have asked that they also pay $47,000 in restitution. They're also barred from making any money from the incident. So no money from book deals. Link: LA Times

I personally think they should have their children taken away. They have permanently damaged that boy's psyche.

I predict trouble... it's appears to me that neither parent is capable of completing a full sentence (dar)
