Bloom ordered an investigation by Child Protective Services. He inquired about custody and was told the children, plus a 4-year-old sibling, are staying with a relative.
Craig Rogers appeared agitated and nervous in the courtroom.
"I suspect Mr. Rogers is coming off a high from last night and would test positive for drugs today," Giggenbach said.
Rogers admitted that he had taken drugs, including marijuana and opiates. He said he has applied for acceptance into the Drug Court program.
"Burglaries, fraudulent schemes and drugs," said Giggenbach. "That's why these children are not in school."
Bloom has jailed a number of parents for failing to have their children in school. He has sentenced several to perform community service in their schools and fined many of them for excessive absences.
He has also made it clear that he will remove children from a home if the parents cannot handle getting their children to school.
