News Desk November 28, 2017

Parents in Brighton were concerned on the action taken by school’s board and demanded answers on giving permission to the rape sentenced student’s return, according to WXYZ, an ABC affiliate.

On Monday night, parents and relatives of the three victims asked the school board of the Michigan city to prohibit the student to enter the school.

The 15-year old who was charged to a 45 days detention in October, is set to complete his said term for punishment and is about to return. Parents fear as their daughters will have to face the attacker again.

Addressing the Brighton Area Schools Board a woman said, "Shocked and sickened to my core that we could possibly let a predator back into our schools or around our kids”.

One of the fathers gave a suggestion of making the boy to attend online school.

As the girls are underage, 7 Action News is not revealing the girls’ identities since they are all underage.

President of the school’s board told Action News on Monday of board to remain silent on the matter. Although, the parents of the victims understand the legalities, but are frustrated by what comes next.

A victim’s mothers proposed the school to stand for their daughters and not allow the boy to return. She said this would make her daughter comfortable in going to the school.

The boy was originally charged with 31 felonies with 15 months in a sexual offender rehabilitation facility. But later his sentence was changed to 45 days in juvenile detention.

"She's extremely afraid of him being loose in the community not just coming back to school,” said one mother.

Parents of all three of the victims said their daughters are scared of when he is released.

The teen defendant will be back in court for his review on Dec 4.


Bunny Rabbit | 3 years ago | Reply Hes himself under aged. he has to be given a chance for normal decent life . that much punishment is enough for him. now time for him to focus on his studies .
bobothecat | 3 years ago | Reply This is because US does not consider a 15 year old boy adult. Non sense. Americans think like machine not humans. A human could be an adult in as little as 7 years.
