A 12-year-old girl selling toys for a charity was suspended for three days from her Lutheran school when her principal mistakenly assumed that the girl was selling sex toys to her peers.
“In your wildest imaginations, no adult could possibly view this as a sex toy, this is a water-filled bag.”
Milt Habek, father of Frances Habek, insists that his daughter did nothing wrong, and the principal had no reason to suspend his daughter from Trinity Lutheran School on Geneva Street in Racine, Wisconsin, according to a report by TMJ-4.
The girl said that she had permission from a teacher to sell the “water snake wigglies.” Frances was selling the toys for $1 to benefit autistic children. She described the wigglies as a sort of stress-relief toy.
“It just calms you when you touch it. You squeeze it, it’s cold, and it’s hard to hold sometimes.”
Even after Frances explained the toys, the principal of the school, Pamela Amling, reportedly still decided to suspend her. She pulled the 12-year-old out of a basketball game in front of the rest of the students, embarrassing the preteen.
“It was really really loud and people could hear it. People are staring at me.”
Frances’ father is reportedly working to reverse the damage this accusation had inflicted on his daughter. However, the school board has already made its decision on the matter, and has taken the side of the unforgiving principal. The school’s pastor, Pastor David Gehne, said that he could not discuss the case because it involves a student.
“We wouldn’t discuss the details of any situation regarding one of our children, they’re all minors.”
The report read that Habek is fighting the board’s decision and is resolved to have the detrimental actions the principal took cleared from the girl’s record.
