MONTGOMERY COUNTY, TX (CBS ATLANTA) -
An honor student in Texas was thrown in jail after she missed too many classes at her high school.
A judge issued Diane Tran, 17, a summons Wednesday for her excessive truancy after she missed class. She was arrested in open court.
Last month, Tran was issued a warning by the judge for missing school.
Tran said she works both full-time and part-time jobs, in addition to taking advanced and college level courses.
But the judge said Tran's case was bigger than the individual situation of one student.
"If you let one run loose, what are you gonna' do with the rest of 'em?," said Judge Lanny Moriarty. "Let them go too? A little stay in the jail for one night is not a death sentence."

Obviously this student has too much ability to waste it in the socialized education system.
Warehousing of our children. Treat ‘em all the same, yeah.
Public education at it’s finest.
One size fits all ... or else
Looses jobs, looses honor student role, both put on welfare. Great job judge.
Question: What kind of judge would fine, and jail, a 17 year old girl - one of three children abandoned by their parents, who is working at two jobs to support her siblings while still managing to be an honor student - for missing too many classes?
Answer: An absolute idiot.
Get a rope (for the judge).
The Just Us system in Texas is operating as designed.
So, is school a jail or an opportunity? (The schools of course lose MONEY when students don’t attend. )
They are going to build a prison, a bigger prison system, for you and meeee....
I say we through this judge in her shoes for a day. See how that works for him.
Actually, it has been exactly that for quite a few people.
The judge and the school is more concerned with the amount of time spent in school, rather than the quality of education. Good for the judge, because he most likely made her a conservative.
You can't indoctrinate someone who doesn't show up for the "lesson".
The NEA only cares about $$$$$.
You “lose” jobs.
Kim Kardashian is “loose”.
Also write a polite note to judge to kiss her butt!
Let’s see, the girl is an honor student even if she is missing a lot of classes; she works two jobs and supports her family so the judge throws her in jail where she is probably stripped searched, maybe assaulted (hope there is a followup on this story), maybe loses her jobs because she has been arrested and jailed: Result another budding Asian success story snuffed out.
Some freeping needs to happen (info from the comments to the article):
1. Write or fax the presiding judge for Judge Lanny Moriarty’s district: Presiding Judge Olen Underwood 301 N Thompson, Ste 102 Conroe, TX 77301 (936) 538-8176 Fax: (936) 538-8167 2. Express your disapproval for the astounding “abuse of discretion” in incarcerating an orphaned, non-criminal teenager, the profoundly troubling lack of manifest justice, and the gross neglect in considering all factors. Such judges who are deficient in these ways will continue to abuse innocents, create criminals from otherwise honorable citizens, and to violate fundamental principles of the rule of law. Get this judge removed soon. It will also help other, deficient judges from abusing their discretion also. If many people do this, it WILL have a very BIG EFFECT.
Kid is supporting her family, holding multiple jobs, and an honors student. Judge throws her in jail. I’m just guessing this guy is a democrat since he likes to punish the innocent.
