Clute City Hall

CLUTE — The family of a 15-year-old girl suspected of attempted burglary is seeking $240,000 in damages from the city of Clute for injuries and duress she said are related to her being taken into custody, a city news release states.

City Council members and administrators discussed the letter the city received from an Alvin lawyer detailing the complaint and compensation request during an executive session last week. The city has declined to release the letter, identify the lawyer who sent it or the officers involved, or answer questions about the incident, instead releasing a prepared statement with its version of events.

I have an "amicable resolution"................... put the girl in juvenile detention, the mother in jail, and suspend the lawyer's license. They should be happy the girl wasn't shot, by the car owner!

I agree! Play stupid games, win stupid prizes. She shouldn't have been burglarizing vehicles OR resisting arrest! This kind of behavior from parents is part of what is wrong with kids these days. Those parents should have picked her up from Juvi and disciplined her! STRONGLY!

Had my siblings or I dared do something that stupid we'd still be standing up. The parents have not raised her properly. Unless things change, she will end up in prison.

Where were her parents when she was breaking into cars? She broke the law and resisted arrest. Bad parenting is what it sounds like to me.
