(WBRZ) The parent of a child with Down Syndrome received quite a shock Friday morning when a deputy served her a lawsuit filed by the Livingston Parish School Board.
The lawsuit aims to block Ashley Kellett from placing a doctor prescribed device called AngelSense on her child while she attends school. The school system claims the device can illegally intercept the communication of other students, faculty, and staff.
The WBRZ Investigative Unit first introduced you to Ashley Kellet in November. That's when she said her daughter Peyton was referred to a program for children considered at-risk youth. That referral came after Kellett said she spoke up about the school not following her daughter's education plan. Following WBRZ's story, the school began following the plan.

One month later, there were more problems. Kellett said her daughter began running from the house. Her doctor prescribed AngelSense, which can help track her daughter's whereabouts if she gets away. The Livingston Parish School Board said it is not allowed in their schools.
