A Norwalk High School (NHS) student entered a denial Monday to attacking a 14-year-old girl over things written about her on Facebook.
The 16-year-old defendant was suspended for 10 days after the Nov. 11 incident in the crowded, front NHS hallway. The altercation, which was witnessed by multiple passing students, was broken up by Assistant Principal Dan Bauman and caught on the school video surveillance system. The video clearly shows that none of the students stopped to break up the fight or assist the victim.
The girl made her first appearance Monday in Huron County Juvenile Court. She is charged with assault, a first-degree misdemeanor if committed by an adult.Find more of this story and other exclusive content in the Norwalk Reflector print edition or the E·Paper online newspaper.
