Diane Tran, a student at Willis High School in Texas, works part-time at a wedding venue, and full-time at a dry cleaner to help provide for her family. A judge warned her in April to stop missing class, but she missed again, CNN affiliate KHOU reported, and a judge put her in jail for truancy.

"A little stay in jail for one night is not a death sentence," Judge Lanny Moriarty said.
