Parents whose children arrive late to class cannot face criminal chargesA under a Virginia law requiring school attendance, the state's highest court ruled Friday. The decision by the Virginia Supreme Court exonerates a Purcellville mother of three who was convicted of misdemeanor chargesA for her children's tardiness, and it ensures that - unless legislators act to change the law - bringing children to school late will no longer be a crime on its own in the state.
