Record Number: 

State v. Chavis, 45 N.C.App 438, 263 S.E.2d 356 (4 March 1980). Petition for writ of certiorari denied, 449 U.S. 1035, 66 L.Ed.2d 496, 101 S.Ct. 610 (8 Dec. 1980).


Defendants had received suspended sentences of imprisonment for violating the compulsory school attendance law during the 1978-79 school year. When the county desegregation plan assigned their children to Oxendine School rather than Prospect School, they sent their children to Prospect School; the children remained on the premises but received no instruction. Defendants said the Civil Rights Act of 1964 did not apply to them. The lower court’s decision was upheld. See also entry 1376.
