Some local Moms are wanted by the law for not making sure their children are in school.

Caddo Parish District Attorney James E. Stewart Sr, says the custodial parents of four Shreveport students are wanted for not showing up in juvenile court to determine why their children are not attending class regularly.

Caddo Parish Juvenile Judge Natalie Howell issued bench warrants for three mothers when they failed to appear for a contempt of court hearing before her. During that hearing, Judge Howell was going to attempt to decide what should happen with the parents for failing to comply with previous court orders to get their children in school or to comply with the court’s truancy probation officer.

DA Stewart says “non compliance by parents with efforts to get children in school will not be tolerated.”

Here's More Information About the Wanted Parents:

Brittany Johnson, 33, of the 4300 block of Illinois Ave., Shreveport. She was scheduled for a hearing to show why she shouldn’t be held in contempt of court for missing the mandatory conference with the truancy officer that was ordered by the court. Her child has missed 111 days of school at Fair Park Middle School.

Nina Thomas, 34, of the 200 block of Brookbriar Drive, Shreveport. She was scheduled for a hearing to show why she shouldn’t be held in contempt of court for missing the mandatory conference with the truancy officer that was ordered by the court. Her child has missed 85 days of school at Caddo Heights Elementary.

Ashley Green, 38, of the 2000 block of North Hearne Avenue, Shreveport. She’s the mother of two children. She was due in court to show why she shouldn’t be held in contempt of court for missing the mandatory conference with the truancy officer for each of her two children that were previously ordered by the court. One of her children has missed 27 days of school at Northside Elementary. Another child has missed 26 days of school at Northside Elementary.

All of the children in these cases have been previously adjudicated as truants, but the parents have continued to refuse to comply with school board officials and truancy prevention volunteers in getting the children to school. Once these Moms are located, they will be taken to jail pending further legal actions.
