Messed up!

A homeless mother faces up to 12 years behind bars for "stealing" education for her son!

Tanya McDowell (the sad looking woman above) says she signed her 6-year-old son up at a public school in Norwalk because she moved around between the cities of Norwalk and Bridgeport CT.

The Norwalk school district says that she didn't technically live in Norwalk, which, according to the district, means she thieved $15,000 in educational services.

$15,000?! Who knew a first grade education at a public school was so pricey?

Either way, the judge agreed with the school. Because of her educational theft and other charges agist her, McDowell was sentenced to 12 years in prison. She also has pay the city of Norwalk $6,200 for the glue, construction paper and tiny scissors she used.
