6-Year-Old Girl Stole Dessert At School, Ends Up Handcuffed And Detained

One mother got a call that her daughter was misbehaving in school, so she went to sort out the problem. She wasn't expecting to find her daughter chained up under the stairs like a hardened criminal, but a school security guard felt it was warranted.

A student told a school security guard at Fernwood Elementary that 6-year-old Madisyn had stolen a piece of candy. Marlena Wordlow came to collect her daughter and was stunned to find the security guard had kept her handcuffed under the stairs for more than an hour.

When Wordlow asked why her daughter was being detained in such a manner, the guard allegedly told the mother, "I'm teaching her a f---ing lesson. She took a piece of candy and I handcuffed her under the stairs."

Reports say Madisyn was 'crying, sweating, and visibly scared and distraught' when her mother found her. The angry mother informed the guard that she had put the piece of candy in her daughter's lunchbox.

Police officers refused to press charges against the security guard. Now Wordlow's suing the Chicago Board of Education and the security guard for excessive force, false imprisonment and emotional distress.

Wordlow is trying to find a new school for her traumatized child. Jeffrey Granich, her attorney, says, "The Chicago Public Schools system has a responsibility to make sure nothing like this happens again."
