6-Year-Old Labeled Sex Offender

6-Year-Old Suspended For Giving a Classmate a Kiss

A simple schoolboy crush in Colorado has turned into a sexual harassment case. Hunter Yelton, a first grader at the Lincoln School of Science and Technology, was suspended for kissing a classmate's hand. But that's just the beginning. The school's principal saw the smooch as a form of sexual harassment and added the offense to the boy's record.

"This is taking it to an extreme that doesn't need to be met with a 6-year-old," Hunter's mother Jenny Saunders told KDRO. She adds that this is the second time the principal has accused Hunter of sexual harassment, as he kissed the same student earlier this year. Neither the recipient of the kiss or her parents had an issue with the kiss.

Since this is Hunter's second act of sexual harassment, the school district has listed him as a sexual offender — a label his mother wants removed immediately.

"I'm going to stand up and fight for him because that's not the case, that's not what happened at all."
