LOS ANGELES (AP) - Prosecutors say a Los Angeles mother helped her 14-year-old daughter smear human feces and scrawl swastikas and slurs in maple syrup at the houses of classmates.
A city attorney's statement Monday says 43-year-old Catharine Whelpley has been charged with nine misdemeanors including vandalism, trespassing and contributing to the delinquency of minors.
Prosecutors say on April 3, Whelpley drove her daughter and friends to vandalize the house of a former friend from middle school with syrup, feces and toilet paper.
They say Whelpley then drove to another girl's house, where they did the same thing, but Whelpley's daughter also drew a swastika on the front door and wrote 'Jew' on a concrete path. Neighbors' surveillance video led police to Whelpley.
Contact information or an attorney for Whelpley could not be found.
