Attorneys for a Jacksonville, FL, teenager accused of attacking a fellow student is fighting to get their client back in the classroom after a judge moved to have her expelled from the Duval County School District.
Aria Jewett, 14, says her attacker, another 14-year-old eighth-grader, slammed her head into a stone wall and repeatedly beat her. Jewett estimates 30 kids watched. The attack was recorded on a cell phone.
Jewett suffered a fractured skull. Her attacker was arrested for aggravated assault and removed permanently from Oceanway Middle School in Jacksonville. Jewett says her attacker has a history of assaults like this that have been recorded.
Florida Circuit Judge Henry Davis sentenced to have Jewett's teen attacker banned from attending any public school in Duval County. Last week, a Florida appeals court suspended the order banning her from all Duval County schools. She could be back in the classroom any day now.
