GLEN ST. MARY, Fla. -- Brittany Deyoung is 16 years old and scared to go to school. She said she is still feeling the effects of a fight she was in last month.

"I've been in the emergency room for an anxiety attack while at school," she said.

She said she was jumped by a classmate who had been bullying her. She said her attacker left her with bruises after repeatedly pounding her head into concrete at her bus stop.

Brittany Deyoung said, "I'm constantly looking over my shoulder because she jumped me from behind."

Now, Deyoung and her mom, Sheina Deyoung, said they have a new reason to worry. The attacker is back at school.

Sheina Deyoung said, "She got eight days' suspension. Then she was allowed to come back to school. She's not even in an alternative school."

Sheina Deyoung showed Action News the restraining order she has against the alleged bully, which lists the school's address as one of the places the attacker is supposed to stay away from.

So Action News reached out to the Baker County School District, looking for answers. Action News was told to send an email to an employee, who hasn't responded yet.

In the meantime, Brittany Deyoung said school administrators gave her and her attacker a map showing routes they could walk without bumping into each other on campus.

Sheina Deyoung said she's retained an attorney and is considering filing lawsuits.

The school's secretary told Action News someone with the school district would respond Thursday.

The alleged attacker in this case was charged with misdemeanor battery.  Those charges are still pending.

This article just helps to prove the stupidity of this state's school administrators.

They really think that the (bully) is going to abide by some "designated path" on campus!? Sue the school system when (and it will) happen again. Before there are fatal consequences. In any case!

It is evident the ONLY language this school and this bully's parents are going to understand will be in a Law Suit.
