[ALERT] Must Read!!!! Missouri Law Makers Targeting Our Children With Felonies #SchooltoPrisonPipeline

“Local school leaders are scrambling to figure out changes to Missouri law coming Jan. 1 that some say could result in students being charged with felonies for bullying or getting into a fight at school.” Source: StlToday.com

Dear Parents/Guardians:

We want to make you aware of a few new State Statutes that will go into effect on January 1, 2017, which may have a drastic impact on how incidents are handled in area school districts.

The way the new statue reads, if a person commits the offense of an assault in the third degree this will now be classified as a Class E Felony, rather than a misdemeanor. If he or she knowingly causes physical injury to another person (hits someone or has a fight with another individual and an injury occurs) – one or both participants may be charged with a Felony.
