DULUTH, GA – A student at a Georgia high school is suspended an entire year for hugging a teacher.

Surveillance video shows senior Sam McNair putting his arms around his teacher, then she pushes him away. She also claims Sam put his lips and cheeks on her neck. Sam says that’s not true, but now he’s accused of sexual harassment, and he won’t be able to graduate in the spring.

Sam said, “I have five months left in my senior year. I don’t see why they’d take that away from me.”

Sam’s mom doesn’t see why the punishment is so severe either. She said, “He’s a senior. He plays football, he’s getting ready for lacrosse season. And you stripping him of the opportunity of even getting a full scholarship for athletics for college.”

Sam has been in trouble at school before, but not for sexual harassment.

Hopefully there is still time to get all of this sorted out.

Until then, students should probably remember the lesson they learned in elementary and keep their hands to themselves.
