Runaway Mom Not Likely to Face Charges

Tiffany Tehan, the Ohio mom who went missing last weekend and was found in Miami with another man, will not likely face criminal charges, a lawyer said today on "Good Morning America."


He said that no crime had been committed, because she left voluntarily. Even though the "Balloon Boy" dad and the "Runaway Bride" both had to pay restitution, those cases are apparently quite different. Both of them lied directly to the police. Tiffany, on the other hand, had no contact with the police until she was caught -- and then she confessed everything.

Bottom line: There is no crime in leaving the state.

Meanwhile, Tiffany's husband, David Tehan, said Thursday that he forgives his wife and hopes to repair their marriage.

"She may have made some mistakes, but everyone does -- and I can't blame her for any of this," David said. "There may be issues to work out, but that's OK."

Do you think Tiffany Tehan should have to pay restitution for all the police man-hours and overtime she caused, even if no "crime" was committed?

She should be ashamed of herself. She worried the crap out of her husband and parents. The t.v. networks wasted time running stories about her when they could have spent the time letting us know about people who are missing, people who didn’t chose to run off.

If it was one of the thousands of men who abandon their families every day would there be news stories? Would there be talk of pressing charges? Absolutely not. The sexism is just appalling.

Samantha:

You are absolutely right, men do this all the time and NEVER IS IT NEWS WORTHY, LET ALONE IS THEIR ANY TALK OF PRESSING CHARGES.

WE HAVE THIS DOUBLE STANDARD, WHEN A MAN DOES IT, IT’S OKAY BUT WHEN A WOMAN DOES IT, SHE’S GUILTY OF “WHO KNOWS WHAT” AND ITS ALL OVER THE NEWS.

She left her kids with her husband, they had shelter, food, and superfision from a responsible parent.

WHAT ABOUT THESE GUYS WHO LEAVE THEIR WIVES AND CHILDREN WITH NO MONEY, NO MEANS OF SUPPORT, ETC.??

IT’S TIME WE END THE “DOUBLE STANDARD” IF A WOMAN LEAVES HER FAMILY AND ITS NEWS WORTHY AND SHE MIGHT BE CHARGED WITH A CRIME, THEN ITS TIME THE SAME THINGS HAPPEN TO MEN.

Obviously no argument here. Men have done it for decades, including President Obama’s father. If we pressed charges against this (possibly overworked) mother, that would open an entire can of warms.

Ladies, I see your point and it is interesting. BUT, a huge difference is that this poor husband became a suspect in his wife’s disappearance, How do you think that felt? This is newsworthy because the authorities got involved and spent much time and effort looking for her. When most men abandon their family (which is awful, the family usually know that they did it on their own. Rarely does the spurned spouse put out an amber alert. I don;t think Obama’s Dad left in the middle of the night w/o saying anything. Don’t make excuses for her behavior. It is despicable.
