Casey Smitherman is the school superintendent in Elwood, Indiana and was arrested for helping a student.
A 15-year-old student didn't go to school because he had a sore throat, and knowing the child's home situation and that he didn't have insurance, the superintendent took him to the doctor to be examined.
She lied and said he was her son and got the student a prescription under her son's name.
She's since been arrested for several charges including insurance fraud and identity deception.
She does acknowledge that what she did was wrong, but that her only concern was for the student's health.
The school board issued a statement saying 'She made an unfortunate mistake, but we understand it was out of concern for this child...she continues to have our support.'
Now the question is...should she be charged or did she do the right thing for the child's welfare?
