Lesson Goes Horribly Wrong And Parents Arrested For Involuntary Manslaughter

A Wyoming mother, Paulette Richardson and her husband, Joseph Richardson were charged with involuntary manslaughter last week when their son, Kendall Ball was found dead at home in Urie, in southwest Wyoming on July 7. Their 16-year-old son had died of alcohol poisoning. The mother and stepfather were trying to teach him about the dangers of drinking. Over the course of three years, Ball had said he wanted to drink.

The parents were worried he would turn out an alcoholic like his biological father. The Richardsons said they wanted to make a point by getting him sick. So, they let Ball drink over the course of two hours. Ball drank multiple shots of Fireball and Jack Daniels. Paulette Richardson said when she checked on her son around 11 p.m., he gave her a thumbs up. Her husband checked on Ball at 3:45 a.m., and he was unresponsive. Paramedics soon found him with dark blue, cool skin. When Ball died, his blood alcohol content was seven times the legal limit for drivers at .587.
