Six year old suspended for sexual harassment after kiss on the hand

Boy admits the kissing, says he'll take punishment

By Rick Couri

The “sexual harassment” accusation came after Hunter Yelton kissed a classmate on the hand.

School workers don’t just want to suspend the little guy, they want the issue to go on his permanent record.

“This is taking it to an extreme that doesn't need to be met with a 6-year-old,” Hunter’s mom Jennifer told KRDO in Colorado Springs.

“Now my son is asking questions, what is sex mommy? That should not ever be said, sex. Not in a sentence with a 6-year-old."

Hunter admitted kissing the girl. "It was during class yeah. We were doing reading group and I leaned over and kissed her on the hand.”

The boy went on to say he will face the discipline head on. “They sent me to the office, fair and square. I did something wrong and I feel sorry."

Jennifer says Hunter had kissed the girl on the cheek in the past and had been in trouble for being causing problems in class.

The school district says that makes Hunter a repeat offender and qualifies under the guidelines of sexual harassment.
