Once Again, Texas Leads the Way

Area Students Avoid Detention With Cash: "Robbie Whitehead thought her teenage son was trying to pull a fast one.

The 10th grader told her he bought his way out of detention with three bucks.

'I thought this could not be true as a parent I had no notification that that was even an option or been told there is such a thing that you could pay your way to get out of detention,' Whitehead said.

A spokesperson for Galena Park I.S.D. confirmed the practice but wouldn't talk on camera and neither would the principal at North Shore Senior High."
