PARK HILLS, Missouri (KMOV) -- A 14-year-old boy charged with assault for breaking the tailbone of a Park Hills girl had a hearing in St. Francois County Juvenile Court on Tuesday.
Authorities said the boy struck a 12-year-old girl in the buttocks with his knee at Central Middle School on March 29.
The boy was released to his parents as part of a plea deal.
Central Middle School Principal Mike Harlow and Vice Principal Tracie Casey were also charged with failure to report an act of school violence to law enforcement, a class A misdemeanor. Prosecutors say it was a violation of the Missouri Safe Schools Act.
If found guilty, Harlow and Casey face up to one year in county jail and a fine up to $1,000.
