Amy L. Pullella, 34, was arrested last year because her son, a sixth-grader at Gulfview Middle School, would not attend classes. Pullella, a single mom, said she repeatedly asked for help in getting her son to go to school. She said her son was 'defiant' and, although only 11, bigger than her and she could not force him on the bus. Months later, Pullella is defiant herself, refusing to accept plea agreements from the prosecutor's office because she says she did nothing wrong. Her son, Kevin, is currently living at Youth Haven and attending a different school. David Albers/Staff
