Did Florida teacher order a hit on student?

  • Superintendent wants teacher fired; special hearing called
  • Six juveniles arrested, charged with beating a student in the hallway

A middle school teacher in St. Lucie County, Florida, is accused of ordering a hit against a seventh grader.

School surveillance video shows six juveniles beating Radravious Williams. According to a district investigation, Williams talked back to the teacher, Dru Dehart, in class. The students who beat up the victim say they did so because Dehart urged them to retaliate on her behalf.

Dehart has been suspended and the superintendent is urging her to be fired. The victim's attorney joined HLN's Raising America to talk about pending lawsuits and why they believe that the attackers in this case are victims too.
