http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,351861,00.html An eighth-grader in Kentucky is accused of putting peanut butter cookie crumbs in the lunchbox of a classmate with a severe peanut allergy. The allergic student did not eat the cookies Thursday at Morton Middle School in Lexington. Fayette County schools spokeswoman Lisa Deffendall says the accused student was arrested on a felony wanton endangerment charge. The student will face charges in the juvenile court system. Deffendall says it was well known that the other student suffered allergies. There was no known history of problems between the two 13-year-olds. As a parent of a child with severe environmental allergies, I can understand the need for the offending child to be punished, but I at the same time truly wonder if he/she knows the severity of what allergies can do? IMO the felony charge is a bit harsh. But I also don't have a child with food allergies so perhaps they are different than what I deal with? I do think the "offending" student, needs to have some sort of education, punishment, apology, and some sort of "time" (community service etc) but am just not sure of the severity of the charges? Your thoughts?
