Trick Or Treat?

Trick or treating this year could cost you jail time! Halloween season is upon us and everyone is ready to show off their costumes and get all the candy you can eat! However this year if you are over 12 years old you could be facing a hefty fine or even worse… jail time!

Well, if you are in Chesapeake Virginia that is. You might think i’m joking but sadly it’s true, read the City Code of Ordinance below!  

Sec. 46-8. – Trick or treat activities.

(a) If any person over the age of 12 years shall engage in the activity commonly known as “trick or treat” or any other activity of similar character or nature under any name whatsoever, he or she shall be guilty of a misdemeanor and shall be punished by a fine of not less than $25.00 nor more than $100.00 or by confinement in jail for not more than six months or both.

(b) If any person shall engage in the activity commonly known as “trick or treat” or any other activity of similar character or nature under any name whatsoever after 8:00 p.m., he or she shall be guilty of a misdemeanor and shall be punished by a fine of not less than $10.00 nor more than $100.00 or by confinement in jail for not more than 30 days or both.

This definitely raises the question, how old is to old to Trick Or Treat? To me, at 12 or 13 years old you are still a kid and this punishment is a bit to harsh. Let us know what you think!

My advice… avoid Chesapeake Virginia like the plague!
