Petition is out to have arrest record expunged with out funds to pay for it.

CBS News

(CBS/WMAZ) MILLEDGEVILLE, Ga. - A 6-year-old elementary school student was handcuffed and arrested Friday after she allegedly threw a tantrum in class.

CBS affiliate WMAZ reports that according to the police report, the girl tore items off the walls and threw furniture. The report also says the girl knocked over a shelf that injured the school principal.

The girl was crying in the principal's office at Creekside Elementary before police arrived. When the officer tried to calm the child, she resisted and was handcuffed.

"Our policy is that any detainee transported to our station in a patrol vehicle is to be handcuffed in the back. There is no age discrimination on that rule," said Milledgeville Chief of Police Dray Swicord.

Police took the young girl to the police station where she was charged with simple assault and damage to property. As she is only 6-years-old, she will not have to go to court.

The girl was also suspended until August.



Apparently the mother says that her daughter is traumatized by this and shouts "THEY'RE COMING TO GET ME!" at night.

I'm sorry you threw an uncontrollable fit, you got an arrest record now. It's part of life. The 6 year old was charged with battery. She deserved it. So... STOP COMING TO MY HOUSE AND SENDING ME E-MAILS ABOUT YOUR STUPID PETITION!

Rant over.

Kids have tantrums, it's part of being a kid. Arresting a six year old is stupid, I am sorry. There are other ways, and better ways. Teachers are supposed to be trained to deal with kids like this, at least that is what I am being trained in next semester. From what I have read in several articles, the school didn't even try, they just called the cops. That is the school district dropping the ball, violating the parents' and students' trust, and they should pay for it.

Has anyone looked into why she was having such a violent tantrum? Did someone do something she perceived as a threat? Perhaps she has a condition that would trigger such an outburst? Autism can start presenting around that age, for example. Or emotional disabilities like schizophrenia (yeah, kids get that). Would you think she "deserved it" then?

Considering that you see people with PTSD all of the time, I am actually shocked you are so dismissive and condescending of a child who was handcuffed and thrown into a police car (a very traumatic experience for a six year old) who is now starting to show signs of it.

I have a friend of mine that actually works at the school. She's told me on several occasions she has HAD tantrums before. This one just happens to be the one that broke the camels back.

The mother hasn't even gone to give the poor girl help to begin with all she did was go out and say EXPUNGE MY DAUGHTER'S ARREST RECORD!

I see your point Elara and raise you... if the Petition said I can't afford counseling and the school is not a good place for it I need help getting something like this provided to me. Which is provided anyway. I know counselors that are 40.00 an hour.

I'm not going to give anyone a free ride on expunging their arrest record. I know it seems heartless but I don't believe in free rides. It takes a while and she's six years old. Meaning that she can get that taken off the record even with the fees. She doesn't need a job right now and there's plenty of time for that.


Taken from an Atlanta Attorney on Record Expungement


TEP 1: Get a copy of your GCIC criminal record. You can walk into your local police department and pay a small fee and you will show ID and they will print it for you. Sandy Springs Georgia charges $25.00 for instance. To get at copy of your NCIC (national criminal record) you write to the FBI and submit a request to:

FBI
CJIS Division
ATTN: SCU, MOD.D-2
1000 Custer Hollow Road
Clarksburg , West Virginia 26303

You must send: 1) A signed request with an explanation for the request and your address. 2) Two completed applicant fingerprint cards with name, date of birth, place of birth, SSN and a set of ten rolled fingerprints and eight flat finger impressions. Fingerprints and impressions must be taken by a local law enforcement agency. 3) An $18.00 fee by certified check or money order to the United States Treasury. Request it under the Freedom of Information Act.

STEP 2 : If the GCIC shows you were arrested but not convicted, you may be able to expunge it. You do not have a right to expungement, it is more of a favor. O.C.G.A. § 35-3-37 (d) lays out when it can be granted. If:

1. No criminal charges are pending; and

2. No other convictions within the last 5 years .

What types of records can be expunged in Georgia? :

A. No Indictment was filed because:

1. Arrested and released without the offense being prosecuted, or

2. The prosecutor dismissed the charges without seeking an indictment..

B. An Indictment was filed, but:

1. The charges were “nolle prossed,”

2. The charges were dead docketed, or

3. The charges were dismissed.

Keep in mind the statute lists the other reasons why it won't be expunged such as a plea deal, pre-trial diversion, so read it.

Finally, remember that First Offender and Nolo Contendere please cannot be expunged:

Step 3: How to Get your Georgia Record Expunged:

You must approach the agency that arrested you (Fulton County Sherriffs or Atlanta police department) and they will give you the forms you need to fill out. You need to know the name of the arresting department, date of the arrest and the offense. (thus the reason for getting the GCIC report.The department sends the papers to the district attorney or solicitor and it is up to them to decide whether you meet the criteria for expungement.

If the prosecutor decides to approve your request they will notify the GCIC. Within several months, GCIC will expunge your arrest record.

If the prosecuting attorney denies your request, you can file a lawsuit in the Superior Court of the county where the arresting police department is located. The lawsuit must be filed within thirty (30) days of receiving the denial. Seeking a writ of mandamus is an expensive and complicated course of action so be sure to hire a good lawyer at that phase.

Remember that our firm does not handle these cases nor can we take the time to answer everyone's questions. You have to take it from here. Good luck to you.

YES BITMAP! Lol

I talked it over with some relatives too. They think of it like this. What the police did was called for. Why? Because what if she continued to grow up in that manner to the point where she stabs someone in the seventh grade like in the state of Florida? What if she threw a book at that moment and took out another kid's eye?

The cops were called because the teachers didn't do the job they were trained to do, because asshole parents are like "you touched my kid, I will sue."

The girl needs to be tested for mental disabilities. It is really hard to speculate about the case at all because they are not releasing any information. Does she have tantrums like this at home, only at school, why? If she does have special needs, why is the school not meeting them when they are required to do so by federal law?

Petitioning for expungement is kinda pointless at age six, since it will be sealed with her juvenile record when she turns 18 anyway. Oh no, can't get a job for two years. Granted, the kid shouldn't have been arrested in the first place.

I'd really have to agree with Elara. A teacher really can't subdue a six year old? This is what America has come to? Afraid to discipline students because parents are money hungry bastards? It's really sad.

There is something not 'normal' with this girl if she's throwing tantrums so violently. This school she's at apparently doesn't meet her needs, and the parents of this child should seriously look into treatments and a safer environment for her (and for others).

A kid back in elementary school would throw some VIOLENT tantrums. So violent, in fact, that he once broke a desk in two by slamming his fist on it twice. He would punch holes in the walls and everything.

Well, the teachers didn't do much until the fourth grade. Mr Richie didn't take his crap, so he grabbed him by the scruff of the neck and put him in the corner, embarrassing him in front of the entire class, and guess what? He never did it again.

Welcome to pretty much any action ever.

"Can I do this" has become "Can I be sued if I do this?"

Sad state of affair, and it's not getting better any time soon (partly of media always talking about "regular person X suing for a few millions dollars..." and human greed)

Hurray.
