Three Findlay parents recently made appearances in the Hancock County Common Pleas Court Juvenile Division for allowing children to have too many unexcused absences from school. Kelly Johnson, Tom Boyd and Raquel Boyd all faced one count of contributing to the unruliness or delinquency of a minor. They received a suspended sentence of six months in jail and a $1,000 fine.
Johnson pleaded no contest while the Boyd’s pleaded guilty. Johnson will avoid jail if she has no similar convictions for two years. The Boyd’s will avoid jail as long as the child is in school every day, on time, unless there is a valid excuse.
According to court documents, Johnson allowed a 12-year-old to have 11 unexcused absences between January 9 and January 28. The Boyd’s had allowed an 11-year-old to have 14 unexcused absences between October 20 of last year and January 21.
