Oct 24, 2012 — Hayleigh Perez spent 14 months in Iraq and aside from that, the only time she lived out of state was during the six months that her husband was stationed in Texas.

Perez and her husband own a house in North Carolina ..and they pay property taxes there.

Even so, she was told she didn't qualify for in-state tuition because she didn't pay state income taxes while she was in Iraq and Texas.

Robin Sax is our legal analyst, and give her take on this case.
