    Police in Pennsylvania confirm Sesame Place cannot follow through with their threats to have a 3-year-old boy arrested for ‘trespassing’ if he returns to the theme park despite being given a lifetime ban for ‘protesting,’ Your Content can report.

    “If the letter from Sesame is addressed to a 3 year old, I’m certain it was mistakenly done,” Middletown Township Police Chief Joseph Bartorilla told Your Content.

    He explained that children cannot be arrested or charged with a crime in the state if they are under the age of ten.

    “In Pennsylvania, no one under the age of 10 can be formally charged with a crime. In the U.S., each state sets an age limit for when a juvenile can be charged criminally.”

    As Your Content exclusively reported, the serenity of Sesame Place was blown to smithereens when simmering political tensions between park security exploded in a savage screamfest between ‘racist’ guards and a mother battling breast cancer alongside her autistic 3-year-old son

    In some states, children as young as six can be arrested and charged with a crime, Chief Bartorilla revealed.

    “The youngest that I know of is North Carolina at 6 years old, and the oldest I know of is Massachusetts at 12 or 13 years old.

    “In PA, it’s 10. So to answer your question, no, a 3 year old would never be handcuffed by us.”

    Chief Bartorilla said despite the toddler being threatened with charges or an arrest, it simply won’t happen.

    He added the letter could’ve been mistakenly sent to the child.

    Sesame Place and their parent company SeaWorld have not responded to requests for comment made by Your Content to clarify if the letter was meant for the minor or his parents.
