A lawsuit has been filed against a Kentucky sheriff’s deputy after two disabled children were shackled at a school, according to NBC DFW. The incident occurred at an elementary school in Kenton County, Kentucky last fall where the children, an 8-year-old boy and a 9-year-old girl, attend. The students suffer from attention deficit hyperactivity and other issues, and were being punished for behavior stemming from their disorders. School resource officer and deputy Kevin Sumner handcuffed the children’s backs in three incidents, and was filmed during one of the incidents. Neither child was charged with a crime, but both allegedly were traumatized by the ordeal.
