Westside students suspended for sex acts at school

Four Westside High School students were suspended for the remainder of this school year for engaging in sexual activity in the field house Nov. 15, according to Richmond County tribunal hearing results released this week.

 

The students were given the option to attend Tubman Education Center instead of long-term suspension.

No details were given regarding the type of sexual activity or the students’ relationship with one another.

After being charged with child molestation for an incident that occurred off campus, an Academy of Richmond County student was suspended until the final disposition of his criminal matter, according to the tribunal report.

When the judicial process is complete, the student will return to the tribunal panel to determine his placement in school.

Unless otherwise noted, the following students were given the option to attend Tubman Education Center in lieu of long-term suspension:

• A Lucy C. Laney High School student was expelled for the remainder of this school year and suspended for the 2012-13 year for pulling the fire alarm without cause Nov. 14.

• A Cross Creek High School student was suspend­ed for the remainder of this year for inappropriately touching a teacher and making a rude comment Nov. 9.

• A Tutt Middle School pupil was suspended for the remainder of this year and first semester of next year for stabbing another student’s hand with a pencil, breaking the skin, on Nov. 8. The accused student has had several bullying violations, according to the tribunal report.
