Melbourne, May 14 : A 13-year-old boy from Texas has been convicted of fraud for hiring two hookers and racking up 30,000 dollars in charges on his father's credit card, it has emerged.
According to money.co.uk, Ralph Hardy confessed to ordering an extra credit card from his dad's existing credit card company and taking his pals on a spending spree after which they ended up playing Halo on an Xbox with the hookers in a Texas motel.
The 1000 dollars -a-night prostitutes were released without charge but Ralph was given a three-year community order upon his conviction on May 9, reports news.com.au.
The prostitutes told police they grew suspicious when the kids said they'd rather play Xbox than play with them.
Authorities were alerted to the motel by a delivery clerk who, after delivering supplies of Dr Pepper, Oreos and Fritos, was asked by the kids where they could hire some escorts.
They explained they'd just won big at a World of Warcraft tournament and wanted to relax.
The delivery clerk called the police who arrived to find 3,000 dollars in cash, electronic gadgets, an Xbox console and games, plus the two prostitutes.
Ralph reportedly told the officers his dad wouldn't mind, because he'd turned 13 the previous week and he'd forgot to get him a present.
