A 10-year-old boy is off the hook for hitting another kid during a dodgeball game.
Bryce Lindley was charged after hitting a kid who had a medical condition that makes head injuries dangerous. What in the world that kid was doing playing dodgeball is beyond…anyone. Bryce was suspended for a day and then charged with assault. He had no idea about the other boy’s condition.
Prosecutor Kym L. Worthy sent a letter to Bryce’s attorney that said, "The charge in this case was a mistake in judgment by this office, even though it was rectified by permanently dismissing the case on July 31, 2019, prior to the first scheduled court proceeding".
Worthy also noted that steps are being taken with the Juvenile Division so this type of situation doesn’t happen again.
