    @IfYouOnlyKnew He didn't that I know of -- I am sure he said he really thought it was me or something

    I don't think it advances the thread to seem to accuse a kid of outright lying. One poster, earlier, tried to be diplomatic, just raise the question. We can get all bothered on a thread and sometimes and, I think, forget that the OP isn't helped if he/she is put on the defensive.

    But at the same time, an OP needs to realize how one's own words come across, in writing and on an anonymous forum.

    It may not be enough to jump to our kids' defense. Sometimes, I feel that when someone else calls out our kid's behavior, we should take that hard look. Not to punish, as much as to be aware that, as parents, there may, in fact, be something that needs to be changed. After all, we're trying to "raise them right," into young adults with various skills (and awareness.) Not just keep them officially out of trouble.

    From #4 Any teachers in the area should have made statements before the suspension

    Aren't there cameras at the school? I feel like footage could be pulled from the events in question. If your son is adamant that he is innocent of certain actions, he could try to prove it that way. However, my gut tells me this isn't the first, or the last time he's going to do this. This comes from a deeper subconscious disrespect for women.

    Wow just wow. I'm at a loss for words to describe this comment. It is totally out of line.

    I should have specified that my statement was geared more towards if he was guilty of the groping and other similar actions.

    OP, just wanted to say I'm sorry for what you are going through, whether or not your son was at fault. I know you must feel very alone - it's hard for parents to reach out to other parents for support in cases like this. I hope things will settle down.
