in #CASE you missed it… Teen Sent to Jail Over Homework

A 15-year-old in Michigan student was incarcerated during the coronavirus pandemic

A judge sentenced her to jail after she missed her homework assignment

The girl had been on probation on charges of assaulting her mother

A Michigan fifteen-year-old landed herself in jail after she missed her homework assignments. The teen's high school had been closed because of the pandemic and that allowed her more freedom. That freedom led her to miss some homework assignments and that landed her behind bars.

It seems the teen had been on probation on charges of assaulting her mother and stealing a classmate's phone from a locker room. The judge in her case allowed her to remain at home after those charges were filed, provided the teen abided by the rules of her probation-including schoolwork. Judge Mary Anne Brennan said during sentencing, "She hasn't fulfilled the expectation with regard to school performance. I told her she was on thin ice and I told her that I was going to hold her to the letter, to the order, of the probation."

So when the teen landed back in front of the judge Brennan and she sent the girl out of the courtroom in handcuffs and straight to a juvenile detention center.
