At this point, I wouldn't care about the money... it's the comment she made about pressing charges against a 6 yr old that would tick me off.
This is what I would do: get the money together, go over there when both husband and wife are home.. I would not go alone, be sure to have another adult along.. and make it clear that you're taking responsibility for the 'fine'.... I would have something typed up and have them both sign it stating that you paid the fine and you're done with this and then I would make it really clear that you didn't appreciate being threatened with having charges brought against your 6 yr old son.
I have a feeling this kind of thing happens often at their house, and this time... they're taking it out on you.

Keep it civil.
Keep your head held high.
Keep your distance.
Keep your kid away from them.

And then I would let this go.

The neighbor is being a bit of a drama queen. ie pressing charges.
But

The boys were wrong wrong wrong. Don't care if the door was unlocked. I knew at that age you don't just walk into someones house. What if there wasn't an alarm? How far would they have enter?

Pay the fee.

If the neighbors are charged a fee due to a false alarm that these boys set, I do think that they should pay. I think the $12.50 is petty, but I do see that the neighbor is making a point.

I would also take the opportunity to teach the boys that they don't even TRY to enter a house that isn't theirs without permission, regardless if the door is locked or not.

im gonna get slammed for this...but should a 6 year old and 8 year old be out wandering by themselves unsupervised? ...especially a 6 year old?

even in the safest neighborhoods...6 year olds can be kinda...stupid. they're curious.

im not a fan of ruling kids by fear and over protectedness - but...shouldnt someone be watching these kids from a window at least?
2c hair. maybe a little porous? my hair likes suave, vo5 and the big tease. going to be trying more lush soon. not sure how i feel about dr bronners.

letting my hair be natural again after getting it straightened. yeah yeah, im a traitor
She's even walked in my bedroom at 8 a.m. when I'm still sleeping!
That would only happen once in my house.

Um, so...why was your door open when you were sleeping (and I guess no one else was home)?
