Hunter Yelton: Colorado boy, 6, suspended for kissing classmate on the cheek

CANON CITY, Colo. (AP) -- A 6-year-old boy has been suspended from a Colorado school for kissing a girl on the cheek.

School officials in Canon City are accusing the boy of sexual harassment and they want it on his school record.

The boy's mother tells KRDO-TV her son, Hunter Yelton, was suspended once before for kissing the girl and had disciplinary problems, but the girl did not object to being kissed.

A School District RE-1 official says the repeat offenses meet the school policy definition of sexual harassment and they hope the tough standards will force the boy to change his behavior.
