MO Supreme Court Rules Against Lebanon Moms

Two women from Lebanon will spend time in jail for not sending their children to school.

The Missouri Supreme Court ruled Tuesday they violated the state’s compulsory attendance law.

The children of Tamarae LaRue and Catilyn Williams were enrolled at Esther Elementary School.

Court documents say the women were notified by the school that their children had excessive unexcused absences from school.

Williams was sentenced to 7 days in jail and LaRue to 15 days, suspended sentence, and placed on probation for 2 years.

The case was on appeal from Laclede County Circuit Court.
