Homeless mother who sent six-year-old son to better school in the wrong town jailed for five years
A mother who pleaded guilty to fraudulently enrolling her six-year-old son in the wrong school district has been sentenced to five years in prison.
Tonya McDowell sent her son to an elementary school in Norwalk, Connecticut, instead of her home city of Bridgeport.
The 34-year-old, who was homeless when she was charged with felony larceny last year, said she wanted the best education possible for the boy.
Where are all the people talking about justice is blind? Cause I fail to see how this warrants five fucking years in prison. There are violent crimes people have committed and gotten a lesser sentence. But let’s remember Tonya McDowell is a poor WoC, so she’s gonna get shit on either way.
