Does Dad Deserve Jail Since Daughter Failed GED?

An Ohio judge threw the book at a dad whose daughter has not received her GED. Brian Gegner was sentenced to six months in jail for contributing to the delinquency of a minor — his child Brittany who has a history of truancy. Despite the fact that the woman is now nearly 19 years old, a mother of an 18-month-old daughter and living with her fiancé at her mother's house, the father was charged because he had custody of her when the problems began. An Associated Press article said:

Butler County Juvenile Court administrator Rob Clevenger Jr. said Monday that the court still has jurisdiction in the case because Brittany Gegner was a juvenile when the truancy problems began and when the charge against Brian Gegner was filed in 2007.

Is justice being served?
