Do you believe that this judge was correct in his sentencing?
[h=1]Honor student placed in jail for tardiness and truancy at school [/h]Do you agree that by making an exception in this case with the judge's expressed belief that he would appear *soft* by not treating all cases of truancy the same? While this case does appear to be exceptional, how do you feel that judges should deal with truancy cases of those age 17 and over? (In many states, at that age those teens could simply drop out.)
