Jolly Rancher Candy Lands Third-Grader In Detention - KIAH: "All this week, Leighanne Adair, 10, didn't play outside during recess or eat her lunch with friends. Instead, she spent that time writing an essay about her punishment.
'She never gets in trouble. I don't think she's gotten a discipline notice this year,' said Michael Brazda, the girl's stepfather.
On Monday, Adair came home in tears with a detention notice for her parents. The punishment was not for talking in class or for hitting another student. The notice said it was because she had accepted a Jolly Rancher candy from a friend during the lunch hour. A teacher confiscated the candy and sent the third-grader to the principal's office."
