The boys mother, Shana Perez said he was being punished for misbehaving and that she only consented to the paddling because she felt pressured as she had previously been arrested for truancy after Thomas had missed school for 18 days.

Either have Thomas suspended or have him paddled. She said she believed she could go back to jail for another day for truancy if Thomas was out of school.
