MONTGOMERY COUNTY, TX [SIGN UP: Get headlines and breaking news sent to you]

Thirteen kids will spend three days behind bars. If any are seniors, they will have to report to jail after they graduate.

That ruling came from Judge James Metts, who is known for cracking down on kids who skip school.

Montgomery County has a program that forces students who cut class to wear ankle monitors. The ankle monitors also make sure they are up at 6am morning for school.
