Richmond County students suspended in tribunals

Two students were suspended after they were found with sharp items, and two others were suspended following an indecent exposure incident in class, according to Richmond County tribunal findings made public Friday.


At Academy of Richmond County, a student identified as C.G. was found guilty of possessing a razor blade on Sept. 30 and was suspended for the rest of the semester with the option to attend the Tubman Education Center Alternative Program, according to the report.

At Tutt Middle School, two students, identified as L.J. and A.H., were found guilty of illicit or immoral activities. On Sept. 28, L.J. asked A.H. to show his "private parts" in class, so he did, the report said.

A.H. was suspended five days in addition to the original suspension he received from the school, assigned to in-school suspension and was placed on probation for the rest of the school year. L.J., who receives special services, was given time served. The panel showed leniency because of the circumstances of the case, the report said.

At Pine Hill Middle School, a student identified as T.B. was found guilty of possessing a knife and a 3-inch letter opener, on Sept. 28, according to the tribunal finding.

T.B. was suspended for 10 days and placed on probation for the rest of the school year.
