Parents Arrested for Home schooling

Two parents in Montgomery County are accused of improperly home schooling their children.

Forty-seven-year-old Richard Cressy and his wife, 41-year-old Margie Cressy, are charged with endangering the welfare of a child.

The sheriff’s department says the two were home schooling their four children, ages 8 to 14 years old, without the required approval from the school district.

The Cressys were issued appearance tickets to appear in Glen Town Court at a later date.
