A Semski defends family court continued from a-1 been fruitless. In Semski s two Page answer to the charges he said Quot the incredible and erroneous of great concern to me and the dedicated staff of the family he said county schools were not taking advantage of a Law allowing them to sue parents of offenders for full restitution in vandalism and that no repayment policy was in effect in 1971 when the training Center had been vandalized. The judge also said he had never been contacted or asked to meet with the Board contrary to the Board s claims. The criticism of Semski primarily by Board member Chester Collins and Board president Oren Miller came at the weekly meeting of the school trustees after the Board was informed by correspondence of four vandalism incidents at two schools within the past two weeks. The Board unanimously authorized a letter of complaint to be written to Semski by supt. Bobby Ladner and requested that Board members meet personally with the judge As a follow up action and that the criticism be made a matter of Public record in the meeting minutes. The school Board meets again monday night. The following is the text of judge Semski s response the incredible and erroneous claim of the Harrison county school Board that the family court is responsible for vandalism in the Public schools and Quot turns All those kids Loose Quot and is not interested in the restitution is of great concern to me and to the dedicated staff of the family court. Vandalism is a problem which alarms All of us. After All they Are our tax dollars which support the school system and it is the communities codes of conduct and Laws which Are being flaunted by those who vandalize. We Are concerned about Why children As Well As adults often feel that they must attack institutions which should represent to them a warm Safe place in which to experience the pleasure of learning. I have been requested by the press and other communications Media to comment on the article appearing in the daily Herald reporting last monday night s school Board meeting regarding a letter of complaint supposedly addressed to me by the Harrison county school Board. As of this Date june 26, 1976, i have received no such letter. In Justice to the Public and to the dedicated members of my staff and As previously reported in the daily Herald i shall now comment on the article As i did not receive the letter by this weekend. I gather from Larry Jones article the school Board is angry because the Orange Grove Middle school and Bel Aire elementary school were vandalized in four separate instances which Are being investigated by the Harrison county s sheriff s department. When and if the persons responsible Are caught and if any of them Are juveniles and if they Are turned Over to the family court for action i expect every member of the Harrison county school Board to be present throughout the proceedings As Quot interested parties Quot so that the members May obtain firsthand information As to the Workings of the court. In fact i now invite the Board to be present at the disposition Al hearing in the Case now before the family court involving the vandalism of a North Biloxi school. I have examined the file of the exceptional school Case referred to in the article. This vandalism took place in february 1971, just shortly after i took office on january 15, 1971. At that time there was no general policy of restitution in the family court. Such a policy is now in effect and has been for several years As part of the plan of rehabilitation for each child. Restitution is considered specifically in every Case not just vandalism cases by each youth Counselor in his social summary or report to the court for use in the disposition Al hearing sentencing. The school Board has one of the finest lawyers in the state of Mississippi representing the Board. Certainly he has advised them of a Mississippi Law especially enacted for the recovery of monetary damages for the vandals nation of school property by pupils. This Law permits the Board to file suit against the parents of the guilty pupils for the recovery of such damages. I know of no instance where the school Board has Ever taken advantage of this statutory right by filing suit in the proper court not the family court. I think the school Board has an obligation to take this action if for no other reason than to conserve our tax dollars. The essential Point i wish to make is that the personnel of this court Are concerned we have always been concerned and we will always remain concerned about the problems of children in this Community. My staff and i shall continue to perform our duties without engaging in controversies with the members of the school Board or anyone else. Although i have never been requested to do so i will be glad to meet with any member of the Board the school superintendent or the entire Board.
