Punishment To Be Handed Down To Athens Teen

It's alternative schooling for the rest of the school year for an Athens ISD student.

Last week, 13-year-old Melanie Bowers accused several Hispanic students of attacking her over an anti-illegal immigration sign she brought to school.  But as surveillance video later showed, the accusation was false.  Melanie's parents have kept her at home since the incident, and the school district said they have not been able to reach her parents.
