TRUANCY - SUSSEX COUNTY

Representation at the truancy hearing before municipal court on March 20, 2019

WC faces truancy charges for the second year in a row because his daughter has accumulated more than 50 absences this year. However, she suffered a concussion twice and illnesses that WC explains account for most of the absences. WC appeared before municipal court on February 28 and was pressured to plead guilty but he refused. WC believes the court date was adjourned to March 20th and he was warned that if he does not send his daughter to school in between he will be fined for past absences and the absences in the intervening time. WC is seeking representation at the March 20, 2019 hearing before the municipal court with the goal of having truancy charges dismissed without imposition of a fine.
