Mom jailed for letting son carry 'roulette' gun



Published: Tue, May 14, 2013 @ 11:40 a.m.

BEDFORD, Pa. (AP) — A central Pennsylvania woman has been sentenced to three weeks to a year in jail for letting her 15-year-old son carry a handgun that his friend fatally shot himself with during a game of Russian roulette.

Forty-one-year-old Susan Bonner, of Everett, was sentenced Monday in Bedford County, where she pleaded guilty in March to reckless endangerment.

Bonner’s son took the gun to a friend’s house and left it in a drawer, from which the friend pulled the weapon and shot a third boy, 15-year-old Neal Hammond, during a July sleepover.

The charges against the shooter, 15-year-old Cole McConoughey, were resolved in juvenile court.

District Attorney William Higgins says Bonner was remorseful throughout the case.

Bonner was the only adult charged after her son told police that she let him carry the revolver.
