New Developments In Case Of 2 Suspended Union Endicott Students
10/26/2012 (Updated 11:14:56 PM)There are new developments in the case of the two Union-Endicott students who were suspended for a year for allegedly threatening to bring guns into Jennie F. Snapp Middle School
The student's attorney Ronald Benjamin says he's filed a lawsuit on Friday against members of the Union-Endicott School District and Endicott Police Department for violation of the Federal Civil Rights Statute.
He says the police department along with school officials have submitted the paperwork to file criminal charges against the kids for making terrorist threats. Attorney Benjamin says now instead of it being just an educational issue, he wants the school and police department to pay monetarily for what they've done.
"You have the Superintendent of schools blatantly lying. You have the Principal of Jennie F. Snapp blatantly lying, you have the Detective which in my view is covering up sloppy police work and all in an effort to have criminal charges which are totally bogus to cover up an investigation that investigated nothing.
This is the second lawsuit that Benjamin has filed. He says the first one is pending before the Commissioner of Education and Supreme Court Judge, who both have the ability to have the children brought back to school. Meanwhile he says the students are being home schooled.
