Maquisha Cosey, vice president of the class of ’06 at a Chicago-area high school, came late to her graduation ceremony, a few minutes before doors were scheduled to be locked. A teacher told her she couldn’t enter and locked the door. She eventually found another door where a parent and a police officer let her in. After the ceremony, she was arrested for criminal trespass and disorderly conduct. She spent graduation night, also her 18th birthday, being fingerprinted and booked at the police station.
