The news came one week after the parents and their daughters came forward telling Channel 9 that their daughters were uncomfortable because the boy they accused of filming up their skirts on campus was allowed to return to school with them after a suspension last school year.
The decision to allow him to stay came even after he was charged with four counts of video voyeurism.
“I think there were lots of people at the school district that wanted to do the right thing,” said attorney Frank Hamner.
The attorney for one of the families said the boy accused of recording up the girls’ skirts will do his school work at home until after the Christmas holiday, and then will start virtual school.
He does, however, still get to play sports.
“I think the families goal was always to just get the victimizer away from the victims,” said Hamner.
The suspect’s court case was reset for Jan. 11 and his criminal case on misdemeanor counts should be resolved soon.
