Parents of tattooed teen sue NH school district

The parents of a New Hampshire teenager who was tattooed against his will have sued the school district.

Michael and Tammy Austin are saying Concord School District officials could have prevented what happened to their son.

Their son was a 14-year-old high school freshman in 2010. Police say four people were accused of luring him into a home's basement where they tattooed a lewd image and words on his backside. They pleaded guilty to charges stemming from the incident and served between several days and six months in jail. Three were high school students; they were expelled.

The Concord Monitor reports (http://bit.ly/QiOl1) the suit says the school knew the boy was being bullied and missed classes, but didn't help him. The parents say he has learning disabilities.

An attorney for the school district couldn't be reached to comment.
