The Cape Girardeau County prosecutor continues his truancy campaign with charges against two more parents. Both are charged with parental neglect.
The prosecutor says Yvonne Rachelle Garza’s daughter had missed 57 days of school between September and the end of January. The 9-year-old child of Steven D. Clark had missed 25 days of school and his 8-year-old child had missed 24 days between last Nov. 3 and Feb. 8.
Each of the charges carries the possibility of a 15-day jail sentence and a $300 fine.
