A new law in north tonawanda, new york will now hold parents accountable for their kids' bullying.
This comes after a group of teens, between the ages of 14 and 15 years old, were kicked out of middle school for harassing others.
Parents of children under 18, who are bullying others, could possibly be fined 250- dollars or could spend 15 days in jail.
And depending on the situation... they could have to do both.
Jeff glatz / alderman, north tonawanda common council: "think it's... the important thing is...a message that is sent to parents is, there is a wake up call here."
Mayor art pappas / north tonwanda: "most of our parents are wonderful.
They do take responsibility and they do a good job with their children...and they guide them.
But some...just don't.
