    Wyoming parents charged in teen's alcohol death after trying to 'teach him lesson' about dangers of drinking: cops

    The mother and stepfather of 16-year-old Kendal Balls, who died of acute alcohol poisoning, are charged with involuntary manslaughter.
    A Wyoming mom and stepdad are behind bars after their 16-year-old son died of alcohol poisoning — after they tried to "teach him a lesson" about the dangers of drinking, police said.

    Paulette Richardson and her husband, Joseph Richardson, were charged with involuntary manslaughter last week after her son, Kendal Ball, was found dead at home in Urie, in southwest Wyoming, on July 7.

    For the last three years, Ball had said he wanted to drink, according to court documents. Concerned he would turn out like his alcoholic biological father, the Richardsons said they wanted to prove a point about the hazards by getting him sick.

    They encouraged Ball to drink over the course of two hours, in which Ball put back multiple shots of Fireball and Jack Daniels, before putting him to bed, police said.

    Paulette Richardson said she checked on her son at around 11 p.m., when he gave her a thumbs-up. When her husband checked on Ball at 3:45 a.m., he was unresponsive and paramedics soon found him with dark blue, cool skin, according to the Uinta Herald.

    When Ball died, he had a blood alcohol content of .587 — about seven times the legal limit for drivers.

    Paulette and Joseph Richardson face up to 20 years in prison if convicted, and prosecutors are weighing whether to charge a friend who was home at the time.

    "I am not here to make parenting decisions for people," Uinta County Attorney Loretta Gerrard said. "What I hope people understand, however, is that some traditional parenting lore, wives tales or theories don't apply in an age where we have refined products that accelerate the effect of chemicals on the human body."

    Sheriff Doug Matthews said Tuesday the Richardsons remained in the county jail.

    "It's a tragedy," Matthews said. "There's both sides of the issue. The majority of the people in the community are concerned — they're wanting to know more."

    In fairness to them, they DID successfully show him the dangers of drinking.

    Super guilty.


    If only they had decided to teach him the dangers of unprotected sex with multiple girls in their mid 20s. This might've ended differently.

    Mom has the "no teeth" pout going on, not to be confused with the popular "duck lips" pout. It's a good look for a mug shot.

    You have to down a LOT of alcohol really, really quickly to get to a BAC of .587

    The normal body response is to barf long, long before you get there. If you were pacing yourself even for an hour, it's not likely you would be able to take more shots at that rate.

    I think they murdered the kid. Not manslaughter. Murder.

    The headline calls him "Balls" but the story calls him "Ball."

    Often the headline is written by a different person.

    Why couldn't they have just taught him not to be stupid like his biological mother?
