Do you agree with Texas judge's decision to jail truant honor student?

Criticism mounts over Houston-area Judge Lanny Moriarty's decision to make an example of Diane Tran and jail the 11th-grade honors student for missing school — though she did so to work two jobs to support two siblings. A Texas attorney tells FoxNews.com that the judge likely had no discretion because the state's Compulsory Education Laws requires confinement of truants for 24 hours.
