Cameishi Lindley, whose 10-year-old son was charged in Michigan with aggravated assault over a school dodgeball game, has hired a lawyer to defend her child against the charges.
Lindley has hired Maurice Davis in an attempt to get the charges against her son Bryce dropped.
"You cannot criminally charge a child for participating in a dodgeball game at a school," Davis said in a statement. "If the school intends to hold this child criminally liable for a dodgeball game, then the prosecutors need to bring charges against all of the teachers and school employees that initiated the game, allowed the children to participate in the game, and supervised them during the game."
He continued, "These charges are ridiculous and we demand that the charges are dropped immediately or we will pursue a civil case for malicious prosecution against the state attorney for charging him and will pursue a civil claim against the school."
