And he had criminal charges filed against him. They were eventually dropped, but still… And he’s still expelled for not committing a crime and not bullying.
Tell the Clovis School Board to bring back Preston Hill to school with a welcoming assembly, a written and public apology, and let him graduate with his class.
To the family of the “victim:” Shame on both of you for teaching your son to be a wimp and a whiner. You are to blame for this ridiculously overblown situation, not so much your son. The father’s public comments show no remorse whatsoever. The step-mother obviously has no clue what she is doing and needs to be minimalized as an influence on the stepson. You should take your son out of the high school and put him somewhere else and put all three of you in counseling with a therapist who will tell you all to “buck up or wear a cup.” You owe the Hill family damages, in my humble opinion.
To Preston Hill and family: Way to hang in there. Civil damages are probably due, but trying to get “justice” from a “legal” system is a long process which may prolong the pain. You will decide as a family what is best, let your attorney’s advice be secondary to YOUR decision.
To Fresno County attorney Beth Egan: Deputy District attorney Elana Smith should be fired immediately.
Do go read the story. It’s outrageous. Liberal overreach.
