Assaulted S.C. Student Is A Recent Orphan Living In Foster Care, Attorney Says
The attorney for a 16-year-old student who was thrown across a classroom during an arrest says the officer should be jailed for his actions.
Attorney Todd Rutherford said Wednesday that the girl went to the hospital Monday night and has a cast on her arm and has complained of neck, back and psychological injuries.
In an interview with the New York Daily News, Rutherford also said that the student is a recent orphan who lost her mother and is currently living in a foster home.
