A Loudoun County mother whose three children were repeatedly tardy for school has been convicted of three counts of contributing to the delinquency of a minor and fined a total of $3,000
Maureen Blake's three children attend Lincoln Elementary School in Purcellville, Virginia. They were late a total of 30 times between September 10, 2011 and January 19th, 2012.
Blake said she has been diagnosed with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder, which causes challenges for her. Blake has claimed that she has "outsourced" driving the kids to school, since she is prone at times to misplacing things like glasses, keys and her purse. She also hired a life coach two years ago to help her stay organized.
Despite these efforts, her kids are still late to school over 40% of the days Loudoun County schools were in session the first half of the year.
