A mom in Ohio was jailed for sending her kids to a better school. The school in their district was failing, so she sent the kids to the school in their father's district, even though they didn't live there. The school district pressed charged.
Judge Patricia Cosgrove sentenced her to two concurrent five-year prison sentences. She suspended the sentence, though, in favor of a 10-day jail sentence, 80 hours of community service and three years probation. She had been working as a teaching assistant for special needs children and earning a teaching degree, but since she is now a convicted felon, under Ohio law she cannot earn that degree.
