First reported by


  • An Arizona couple has been sentenced to 30 days in jail for taking a 900-mile trip to Wyoming with two children in the trunk of their car — while their two German shepherds rode in the back seat.
  • Michael Fee, 61, and Amber Freudenstein, 31, told a Natrona County, Wyoming Circuit Court judge Thursday they meant no harm to the children. Fee said, “We traveled up here and didn’t have room for everybody in the car. I tried to make things as safe as I could for them. They were in the trunk of my car.”
  • The children, 6 and 10, were unharmed during the drive, sheriff’s officials say.


  • Do you feel a 30-day sentence was just?
  • What kind of punishment do you think the couple deserves?
