DAVENPORT, Iowa — Authorities say a Davenport woman was arrested after she didn’t appear in court on a charge that she’d let her child miss too many days of school.

Court records say 33-year-old Falyne Klinkner posted $100 bail after her arrest Tuesday. Her attorney didn’t immediately return a call Thursday from The Associated Press.

The Quad-City Times reports (http://bit.ly/2c3AwQj ) that Klinkner was charged in February with violating the law about compulsory education. Police say her 14-year-old child had 35 unexcused absences from school and 24 excused absences.

Court records show the warrant for Klinkner’s arrest was issued in June after she missed a hearing on the original charge. Klinkner is due back in court Sept. 30.
