On May 29, 194 students graduated from LaRue County High School.
On June 3, bench warrants were issued for six of them who decided to skip a required court appearance.
Their offense? Missing too many days of school.
District Judge C. Derek Reed issued the $1,000 cash bench warrants to compel the 18- and 19-year-olds to abide by an agreement he made with each of them at an earlier court date: Show proof of graduation in court on June 3 and misdemeanor charges of intentional breach of compulsory attendance law would be dropped.
