NORWALK, Connecticut – A homeless Connecticut woman is being charged with larceny for using her friend’s address to illegally enroll her son in Brookside Elementary School outside his respective school district.

The Root reports:

According to the Stamford Advocate, this is the first time Connecticut has prosecuted a parent for sending a child outside of his or her district. If convicted, McDowell faces up to 20 years in prison.

Prosecutors allege that the woman, Tanya McDowell, cheated the Norwalk school out of $15,000, which is the estimated value of the child’s education while illegally enrolled over several months.
