Jefferson’s mother says this is the eighth time her son has been attacked because of his sexuality. She said her son will be transferring to another school now because of the attacks.

According to the CBS46 report, four students have been charged in the incident. Three of the alleged perpetrators have been charged with affray, while Jefferson’s friend who retaliated was charged with disorderly conduct.
