LONGWOOD, FL -- We can all agree: there's no place for sexual harassment, especially at school. But a lot of people are asking if folks in Florida might be overreacting to what happened at one of their middle schools.
"I feel like it's just stupid, just a stupid charge that shouldn't have to happen," 12-year-old Breana Evans said.
She admits pinching a boy's butt.
Breana says she didn't even know the boy. It's just a game kids play.
She got suspended, but the boy said he did not want her to face criminal charges. His mother had other ideas.
"What has this world come to," her father, Ray Evans, asked. "Kids can't even be a kid."
Breana was charged with battery and taken to juvie.
The boy's mother hasn't answered requests to tell her side of the story. Breana and her dad both have things they want to say to her.
"I'm sorry. That's all I can say for you, lady, is you need some help, I think," Ray Evans said. "Too overprotective."
"I'm sorry for touching your kid," Breana said.
Breana will have to do some community service time and the whole thing will get wiped from her record.
But we gotta ask: Did anyone really think arresting a 12-year-old girl was gonna make the situation better?
