Judge threatens jail in homeschool case
A judge who was demanding – for his own use – the names and addresses of all the homeschool students and their parents in his Mississippi judicial district threatened school officials with jail if they didn’t give him what he wanted.
The reports of the threat from Judge Joe Dale Walker, of the state’s 13th Chancery district court, come from one of the attendance officers involved in the case in which Walker demanded the student data.
“He threatened us,” said one of the school officials later served with an order the judge wrote and signed for himself.
The WND reported a week ago when Walker was ordered by the state Supreme Court to explain his demands.
