LIVINGSTON, TX - A high school student is suspended for accidentally bringing a beer to school in his lunch. Now his mom is fighting the suspension.
It's been said honesty is the best policy, but Chaz Seale doesn't believe it: "Not right now, I do not."
Two weeks ago, the 17-year-old Livingston High School junior says he accidentally grabbed a beer from his fridge instead of a soda, then packed it in his lunch kit.
It was an honest mistake, says his mother, one that could happen to anyone.
"He was in a hurry, running late. We were talking about school, and he put it all together and took off for school," Christi Seale said.
The teen says he realized what he did while in third period. "So I gave it to the teacher, thinking I wouldn't get in trouble, and I got in trouble," he said.
Chaz Seale was given three days of suspension and 60 days at an alternative school.
"I was just baffled, I said 60 days? That's the maximum amount."
The mom tried explaining to the school principal her son did the right thing by coming forward and feels the punishment doesn't fit the crime.
In a statement the district says the principal of Livingston High followed appropriate administrative procedures. The district said it encourages any parent who is in disagreement with an administrative decision to seek relief through the appellate process.
A Facebook page against the strict zero-tolerance policy and in support of Chaz has already been started. It's a welcome sign of support for a mom who is working hard to clear her son's name.
"I think it's not black and white. There has to be a grey area," Christi Seale said. "You can't punish a kid for doing the right thing, the same punishment that you would give a kid that you catch doing the wrong thing."
Chaz's mom is appealing her son's suspension to try to get the punishment reduced. denton county criminal lawyers


  1. When I got myself into a big mess, Mr. Ross helped me get an amazing deal and now only a few years later I have my life back. He's very professional and gets to know his clients because he genuinely cares. And his staff keep the same level of professionalism. Very highly recommend!

  2. John "Tony" Ross Jr. is hands down the go to man if you need a juvenile defense attorney. He is professional but yet treats you like a friend. Tony really listened to our concerns. He worked hard to get us just about everything we could have hoped for and the charges significantly lessened. He went above and beyond to make sure my family member was treated fairly and with dignity. If you have a child or grandchild in trouble with the law, don't shop around. Call John "Tony" Ross Jr.

  3. Hands down the best attorney in this area! Tony went above and far beyond what we could have expected. If you are in need of legal assistance, he is definitely the way to go.

  4. Tony Ross is excellent, and was a very educated expert in having my case examined and reviewed to get it downgraded...the charge downgraded from a DWI to an obstruction of a highway passage because of the talented Mr. Anthony "Tony" Ross, and Ross Law Offices, P.C.! I was very pleased to not have the original charge of a DWI on record and satisfied of the result of no DWI. Would highly recommend Ross Law Offices, P.C.! Good luck, but who needs luck with Tony Ross!

  5. Mr. Tony Ross is an amazing attorney. My son made some poor choices and needed legal assistance. Mr. Ross was able to help us keep him out of jail and the charges off his record. We are forever grateful that our son has a second chance!
