Christian told Mrs. Herndon, “He (his father the perp) gave me $250 for my band trip, but I’m not sure if it was yours or however he got it, but I’d feel bad if I didn’t give it to you,” he told Tona.”
Mrs Herndon accepted the proffered restitution but quickly returned the money to Christian saying, “I want you to take your band trip.”
