Last year, the Garcia family moved out of the district for Pine Road Elementary school where Fiorella was in Kindergarten. They continued to take their daughter to class at the school for the last month or so of the year – and were charged with a felony.

The district attorney's office says the Garcias benefited from the school district, without paying taxes.

"I couldn't believe it at first. It didn't seem real to me. I felt like I was having a nightmare I couldn't wake up from," Oselia Garcia said in a recent interview with the Univision television network.
