A Pennsylvania man pleaded guilty to abandoning his teenage daughter, reportedly because of a bad calculus grade.
Tuan Huynh of Lower Gwynedd was sentenced Tuesday in Montgomery County Court to two years of probation and 100 hours of community service in connection with the Feb. 22 incident.
Authorities said that, after an argument at home about the 16-year-old girl's grades, her father told her she had an hour to pack and that she couldn't live with her family anymore.
Cops said dad Tuan Huynh drove her 20 km from home and let her out at a street corner near a mall with only her backpack and a small satchel, without provisions, money .
The girl was asking strangers for a place to stay. She had no cellphone to call for help, and no family or friends in the area.
The 16-year-old wandered for several hours before a minister approached her and called authorities for help.
After his arrest, as a bail condition, Huynh had been prohibited from living in the family’s home.
