Mother Outraged Over The Suspension Of Her Son And The School's Bizarre Reasoning

Candice Tolbert, of Ohio, tried to get her son's school suspension erased from his record after he was disciplined last year for staring at another student.

Tolbert said her son did nothing more than stare at a Female student in September 2014--her son is black and the female student is white. She stated “The perception is he intimidated her. My son stared at a girl who was engaged in a staring game. She giggled the entire time.” Court records show the girl "felt fearful."

The incident was said to have happened on a Monday with the female student’s parents calling the school on a Tuesday to complain. Tolbert’s 12-year-old son was reportedly spoken to on Tuesday, but his parents said they weren’t notified of any problem until Wednesday.

Tolbert's son wrote this apology letter, “I never knew she was scared because she was laughing. I understand I done [sic] the wrong thing that will never happen again. I will start to think before I do so I am not in this situation."

Judge Patrick Dinkelacker of Hamilton County Common Pleas Court recently upheld his suspension.

The Archdiocese of Cincinnati wrote this statement “Judge Patrick Dinkelacker listened to the plaintiff’s arguments yesterday, rejected them, and dismissed the complaint against the school. We aren’t going to comment any further on particular issues concerning our students.”

The Tolberts say they are considering appealing the judge’s decision in their case.
