    Answered . I would believe that the ticket would be for truancy and not breaking curfew. Curfew is for being out after a certain evening hour set by a city ordinance. Sounds like you were skipping school, not out late at night. Check the ticket again. If it is for breaking curfew, check the time on the ticket - if the time the ticket was given was for a time prior to curfew, then you have a defense.
