Ohio mom accused in teen fight defends actions
CINCINNATI (AP) — A mother accused of helping her 15-year-old daughter beat another teenager at a Cincinnati high school last week says police and school officials have it all wrong.
Precious Allen tells The Cincinnati Enquirer that the other girl attacked her and her daughter, and that the teen was bigger and taller than both of them.
Allen, a mother of five, says she was talking to a teacher when the girl cursed at her and charged.
Allen’s story differs from what police have described. Police say Allen burst into a classroom, held the other teen down and told her daughter to hit the girl in the face with a combination lock. The girl suffered cuts and bruises.
Allen faces charges of felonious assault and trespassing. She’s been released on bond.
