PUTNAM VALLEY - A 10-year-old boy was suspended from school for two days this week for asking his homeroom teacher for a hug a month after he was reprimanded for telling her she "looked sexy."
The parents of Putnam Valley Middle School fifth-grader Aaron Perez said they are in the process of hiring an attorney to pursue a civil lawsuit because they believe their son's civil rights were violated by the suspension.
"It was an innocent gesture from him," said his mother, Lira Garcia-Perez. "He doesn't know, if you ask him, 'what does sexy mean?' he says, 'that you're pretty.' "

Setting him straight would of been far far better than making him a social parriah which he will be now - imagine the ribbing he's gonna get from the rest of his school friends......
