A Houston eighth-grader, Danesiah Neal, was detained and threatened with a felony when she tried to buy some chicken nuggets with a 2 Dollar Bill for school lunch at Christa McAuliffe Middle School. This is just insane! The school officials confiscated the bill and said it was fake. “I went to the lunch line, and they said my $2 bill was fake,” Danesiah told a local ABC News. “They gave it to the police. Then they sent me to the police office. A police officer said I could be in big trouble.” The school officials contacted Danesiah’s grandmother, Sharon Joseph, who gave the bill to the student to ask for confirmation. Then an investigation into the $2 bill led Fort Bend police to the bank to examine. After the bank determined that the bill is real, the issue finally got resolved. What a nightmare for a little girl to be threaten with a felony forgery, which can carry up to a 10-year prison sentence and remains on a student’s criminal record for life, ABC said.
