*We can only shake our collective heads at what’s happening to a straight-A honor student who is facing a possible 10-day in-school suspension all because he unknowingly used counterfeit money to purchase his lunch.

The school is even considering this punishment in spite of the student’s parents filing a police report regarding the counterfeit $20 bill.

Here’s the deal:  Christian Philon, 12, and his parents told school officials they had no idea that a $20 bill that his father, a retired veteran, got back as change from a fast food restaurant was fake, according to Yahoo News.

The child’s mother, Gwen Philon, told WSB-TV, “If we knew it, he wouldn’t have had it, but we didn’t know.”

Here’s what the father, Earvin Philon, told the TV station:

I’ve never handled counterfeit money. I don’t know what it looks like.”

Christian Philon was attempting to pay for his meal at Austin Road Middle School in Stockbridge, Ga., when the lunch lady marked the bill with a counterfeit detecting ink.

“I was confused on how the money was counterfeit. And how my parents received it,” the 12-year-old told WSB.
