CINCINNATI (AP) — A Cincinnati woman accused of helping her daughter beat another teenage girl inside a high school classroom has been indicted on misdemeanor charges including assault.
Hamilton County prosecutors say 31-year-old Precious Allen was indicted Thursday on assault and trespassing charges. She had initially faced more serious felony charges.
Police said Allen held the victim down and told her 14-year-old daughter to hit the girl with a combination lock. Police say the victim suffered cuts and bruises.
Allen's daughter allegedly gave a teacher a black eye in the same scuffle.
Allen maintains the alleged victim attacked her and her daughter Feb. 7 at Withrow High School and that the teen was bigger and taller than them.
Allen's attorney says he expects her to be found innocent.
