What is the name of your state? Pa. My 16 year old son has been late to school a lot through out the years he's been in school, I have been to court three times already, the second time i when to court i was jail and released on a $500 bail for my son and daughter, mine you my daughter has a clean record.The third time i went to court i had a medical letter saying that my son is being tested for a sleep disorder,and to please excuse his lateness. His school ask me to get this letter to excuse some of his lateness and for him to try to get to school on time, some days he does. The judge said i don't know who this doctor think she is trying to pull wool over his eyes. Then I tried to explain about his grades, my son is in special education classes and has a IEP, his teacher said that my son has no motivation so thats what i told the judge and he hit his gavel and said go to the back and think about some motivation to give your son. He jail me again and release me on $300 bail. the court now have $800 of money that i had to borrow because i'm on a fix income.Did the judge have the right to throw me in jail for just telling him what my son teacher said. And do i have a case for false imprisonment.
