    (North Carolina.)

    You're the parent or the student? Do you know the statute you are charged with violating?

    (Or if you prefer my short answer: When in doubt, get a lawyer.)

    That statute references the duty to attend school, and steps that are to be taken if a student misses a certain amount of school without an appropriate explanation. I see references to the juvenile code, and generally to the state's compulsory attendance law, but I haven't yet found the statute under which a parent might be prosecuted.

    Aaron one piece of information i was given was that the social worker got involved an told the parent that she had called the state on her a long time ago.So are we now looking at some of the statutes at the bottom of statute g.s 115c-378?

    I'm asking you which statute is involved. I don't know, and don't see it. Ask them, and get back to us.

    That statute does not outline penalties, so I can't answer the question. Perhaps somebody else here, or a local criminal defense lawyer, can assist you.
