COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) – The Muscogee County School District has released a second statement regarding the alleged assault of a 13-year-old student by a behavioral specialist.
The law firm representing Montravious Thomas' family claim that Bryant Mosley, listed as a behavioral specialist at AIM/Edgewood Student Services Center, slammed him into the floor on his first day of school on Monday, Sept. 12.
Muscogee County School District's Director of Communications, Valerie Fuller, sent News Leader 9 the following update:
Due to his injuries, the 13-year-old boy had to have his leg amputated below the knee on Oct. 19 at Egleston Children's Hospital in Atlanta.
According to Renee Tucker of Forest B. Johnson and Associates, the legal firm representing the family of Montravious Thomas, witnesses inside the classroom did not assist the child.
The attorney for the family of Thomas says they had initially asked for $5 million when his leg was injured, but now that dollar amount will grow since his leg had to be amputated.
