Have any of you heard of Tara Keener? She is an ER Nurse and loving mother who now faces the possibility of jail time. Why does she face jail time? Because she tried to save her son's life. I know what you're thinking, "What????" I thought the same thing. This all started because the Pennsylvania mother saw her son slumped over in a school bus with children surrounding him. The children were yelling that they couldn't get him to move and that they couldn't wake him. Worried that her son was seriously in trouble, Ms. Keener rushed onto the school bus to try to save him. The driver warned her that it was illegal for her to come onto the bus, but she was focused solely on her son. It turned out, her son was just in a deep sleep and was fine. Despite the situation, the bus driver reported Ms. Keener. A few days after the incident, a trooper told her she wasn't going to be charged. But almost five months later Keener discovered that she was indeed facing a third-degree misdemeanor, an offense that could lead to jail for a year, and a $2,500 fine.
