Several Lee County community and business leaders found themselves on the wrong side of the law Monday.

The Family Connection and Leesburg Police Department served some good-natured warrants Monday.

Attorney Patrick Edison was charged with having a bad boy complex.  A-B-C Bail Bond Owner Steve McGowan was accused of being bonded to his work, and Lee Primary School Principal Donna Ford was charged with having no class.

Each defendant had to raise bond money that will go to the National Night Out Back to School Bash to buy school supplies for students in need.

"Just some basic school supplies, notebook paper, pens, pencils, hopefully maybe things like glue sticks, Post-it notes, little things that they might not be able to purchase on their own," said Patsy Shirley, of Family Connection.

The Back to School Bash is open to all Lee County students and will be held August 8th at the First Baptist Church in Leesburg from 5:00 PM until 7:00 PM.
