A 12-year-old Florida girl is facing charges after she pinched a boy’s butt at school.
“I regret it because I didn’t know it would lead to this,” Breana Evans said, “I feel like it’s just stupid. Just a stupid charge that shouldn’t have to happen.
Breana was read her Miranda Rights, put in the back of a patrol car, and booked into juvenile detention, mugshot and all, for pinching a boy’s butt at school.
“Lord, Lord, Lordy, what has this world come to? Kids can’t even be a kid,” Breana’s father Ray said. Her father ray believes it’s an overreaction, from the mother of the boy, who wanted to press charges.
The pinching itself happened 2 weeks ago between classes according to a report. Evans said she didn’t know the boy and that it’s a game students often do.
“It’s just a joke,” Breana said.
The boy back then according to the report told the school resource deputy he didn’t want to press charges and Breana was simply suspended, but last week the boy’s mother got involved calling deputies saying that this was battery and she wanted to prosecute. That’s when Breana was officially charged.
“That’s what the deputy told me. He said… I don’t even want to do this. That’s what the deputy said. But I have to do what I have to do,” said Breana’s father.
After an attempt to get in touch with the boy’s mother, and no call was returned, Breana and her father just want her to hear them out.
“I’m sorry. That’s all I can say for you, lady, is you need some help I think. Too overprotective,” Ray said.
“I’m sorry for touching your kid,” Breana said.
According to the Seminole State Attorney if Breana completes the diversion program and does the community service, the classes, and passes all of the drug tests then the charge will be dismissed and her record would be clean.
