Mother Drives Getaway Car After Forcing 11-Year-Old Son To Commit Robbery

Athens, TN (The Weekly Vice)-Angela Evans, a 32-year-old Athens woman was jailed after she allegedly forced her 11-year-old son to rob a finance company and then drove the getaway car.

According to Athens police, a juvenile wearing something over his face approached a World finance company clerk Jan 8, placed a gun to her head and demanded all of the money in the cash register.

The young man fled the scene with $80, jumped into a red Mustang and was driven away by a woman who was later identified as the boy's mother, Angela Evans.

Both suspects were apprehended during a routine traffic stop the next day, as the employee was able to provide investigators with a description of the suspect and the getaway car.

The boy who robbed the store with what turned out to be a pellet gun was only 11 years old and reportedly told investigators that his mother forced him into the robbery to help “pay bills.”

Evans, who is a former employee of World Finance, reportedly tried to time the robbery just prior to the days deposit drop, but apparently arrived just a few minutes late. She was driving the getaway car as well.

Evans was booked into McMinn County Jail and charged with Criminal Responsibility for the Conduct of Another.

Her son, who now resides with his father, will be in court on Monday, facing charges of aggravated robbery.

I'm thinking the son shouldn't be in trouble for this. 11 is pretty damn young and a child usually listens to their parents at this age. It wasn't his idea, he did what his mother made him do. Hope he's not scarred for life!

Wow with parents like this raising kids now a days, can you imagine how those kids will be as adults?

Ever wonder what she did at world Finance? Maybe she has a future as a politician?

There is no reason whatsoever for this woman to have taken her 11-year-old son, who has no chance at all of being “financed”, to this particular business, especially around closing time. If this were a gas station or something, she would have a small chance of being innocent. However, that is not the situation and she is obviously guilty, especially since she worked there at some point!

LOL WalkenFan LOL

Fortunately she didn't target an oriental convenience store where they hand over the money and then shoot you on the way out.
