Illegal school fantasy league involved sexual acts point system

Sometimes it takes the disclosure of a story occurring in another state for parents and law enforcement close to home to see if anything similar could be occurring in Wisconsin.

However, the idea that parents might be held liable if teenagers get drunk at their residence and subsequently drive under the influence is foreign to many.
