Call 4 Action: Judge has woman arrested

Garza said the woman was late for her son's truancy hearing.

A La Joya woman issued a Call 4 Action after a municipal court judge had her arrested.

Yolanda Guajardo filed a police report against La Joya Municipal Court Judge Joe Henry Garza.

Guajardo claims that she was arrested for arriving late to her son's truancy hearing that she was never made aware of.

She told Action 4 News that she tried to explain that she didn't know about the hearing but the judge responded by having her arrested.

Judge Garza denied an on-camera interview but said he requires that every other parent was on time except for Guajardo.

The judge ended up dropping the charges.
