“I wasn’t there for Scooter. I was a terrible father. I missed a lot. I was on drugs. I was addicted to drugs. He parented himself.”
This is what Cedric Theodis Hobbs Sr. said when called to testify in court on behalf of his son, Cedric Theodis Hobbs Jr. (also known as Scooter). Cedric Jr. has been charged with first-degree murder and armed robbery after breaking into a pawn shop and shooting a 19-year-old young man. Cedric was on drugs at the time of the crime, apparently following in the footsteps of his father.
