She's facing the loss of her son to the legal system now for what he was a part of. Her son is Sheldon, the one who probably did the dousing was Jesus, another of the 5 teens charged.
Five thought it was OK to douse another with alcohol and set him on fire. I'm a bit surprised the damage was so bad since alcohol burns above the liquid usually. I remember in high school people putting on a finger, then lighting and no harm done. Must be because of the clothing combined with the alcohol that made the damage so much worse. If he needs skin grafts, they know 5 others they can take them from.
