Honest mistake lands student in big trouble

Honesty gets student in bid trouble.

It's been said honesty is the best policy but Chaz Seale doesn't believe it.

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.

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." said Seale.

Seale's received three days suspension and 60 days at an alternative school.

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 LISD administrative procedures. LISD 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.
