13 Year Old Steals Dad's Credit Card to Buy Hookers
Money.co.uk ^ | May 09, 2008 | unknown

A 13 year old from Texas who stole his Dad's credit card and ordered two hookers from an escort agency, has today been convicted of fraud and given a three year community order.

Ralph Hardy, a 13 year old from Newark, Texas confessed to ordering an extra credit card from his father's existing credit card company, and took his friends on a $30,000 spending spree, culminating in playing "Halo" on an Xbox with a couple of hookers in a Texas motel.

The credit card company involved said it was regular practice to send extra credit cards out as long as all security questions are answered.

The escort girls who were released without charge, told the arresting officers something was up when the kids said they would rather play Xbox than get down to business.

Police said they were alerted to the motel by a concerned delivery clerk, whom after delivering supplies of Dr Pepper, Fritos and Oreos had been asked by the kids where they could score some chicks and were willing to pay. They explained they had just made a big score at a "World of Warcraft" tournament and wanted to get some relaxation. On noting the boys age the delivery clerk informed the authorities.

When police arrived at the motel they found $3,000 in cash, numerous electronic gadgets, an Xbox video console with numerous games, and the two local escort girls.

Ralph had reportedly told police that his father wouldn't mind, as it was his birthday last week and he had forgot to get him a present. The father, a lawyer said he had been too busy, but would take him on a surprise trip to Disneyland instead.

Asked why he ordered two escorts, Ralph said he thought it was the thing to do when you win a "World of Warcraft" tournament. They told the suspicious working girls they were people of restricted growth working with a traveling circus, and as State law does not allow those with disabilities to be discriminated against they had no right to refuse them.

The $1,000 a night girls sensing something up played "Halo" on the Xbox with the kids, instead of selling their sexual services.

Ralph's ambition is to one day become a politician.

You'd think the girls would have realized something was up when the clients were kids.

Of course not. They said they were "people of restricted growth working with a traveling circus". Ridiculous, but on the off chance it was true, then the escort service could have been sued in a discrimination lawsuit.

Reminds me of the movie “Weird Science.” Two 14-year-old nerds conjure up fantasy woman, played by Kelly LeBrock. Once they have her they decide to “take a shower with her.” We then see inside the shower where the two kids are still dressed and are staring speechless at a naked incredibly sexy woman with no clue what to do next. She says, “You two are going to have to loosen up if we’re going to have any fun.”

I see governor or senator in his future. He’s got talent in the “finding creative ways to spend other peoples money” requirement that is beyond his years.

There was a story here about this yesterday.

I'm wondering why this story has only appeared in an Irish and English paper and why no TX newspaper has come forward with more details.

It has a hoaxy smell to it.

Heheheheh! I heard about this on Red Eye, cracked me up.

I guess the cops found him with an X Box and a few friends, and the hookers were actually playing X Box with them.

Too funny, in a sick, albeit kind of touching, geek way.

I'm a little skeptical. A weekend of video games, hotels, junk food and hookers only costs five grand, tops.

Or so a friend told me.

"Ralph's ambition is to one day become a politician"

He's off to a good start, but he's going to have to prefer "ridin' dirty" ala Bill Clinton or Eliot Spitzfong if he ever wants to graduate from Xbox games to "winning the public trust".......... Try to imagine Bill or Eliot letting their hookers go to waste like this.....
