Hercules Family Battles Sex Assault Claim Against 6-Year-Old
An East Bay dad claims a game of tag on the playground resulted in his 6-year-old son being accused of sexual assault – a decision he said was an overreaction by school officials.
The parent, who asked only to be identified as Oswin, said his son was accused of brushing his best friend’s leg or groin while the two were playing on the playground at Lupine Hills Elementary in Hercules two months ago.
Oswin said his child was kept in the principal’s office for two hours until he confessed. He was suspended, and a sexual battery charge was placed on his permanent school record.

Gone are the days of “Cream the carrier” and Dodge Ball. I am speechless that anyone could get away with charging a 6 yo with a crime like this.
From the folks who let child molesters get away with murder. Yeah, lets get them six year olds.
The School administrators should be charged with a crime.
I am guessing that high school wrestling is not a sport in SF?
The follow up on this is that the child’s family lawyered up and the school was forced to admit that they made a mistake. A child of six can’t be listed as a sexual predator, so they had to take it off his permanent record. They didn’t like it, though, and did not apologize to the family.
