SURPRISE, Ariz. (CBS Las Vegas) A mother is upset after her 5-year-old son received detention for what his school is calling sexual misconduct.
Eric Lopez, a kindergartner at Ashton Ranch Elementary School, pulled his pants down on the playground this past spring. The child received detention and has a note within his permanent file at the school. At the time of the incident, his mother wasnt notified nor did school officials inform her that her son signed a note in the assistant principals office.
He did not know that he could ask for me, Erics mother, Erica Martinez, told KTVK. Hes 5. Dysart Unified School District has a policy that states a parent does not have to be present for a disciplinary meeting unless the student requests his or her parent.
For the past two months, Martinez has been fighting to have the sexual misconduct label removed from her sons file citing that her sons actions were not sexual in any way. But the district has denied her appeal and the assistant superintendent is defending the schools actions.

When my brother was two he stripped off all his clothes and hopped into a pool with the little girl down the street. Then (late 70’s) it was just funny, now he’d probably get arrested.
Five year old kids know nothing about sex, much less sexual misconduct. This is much-ado about nothing.
Its Las Vegas.....maybe it was HOT outside?
Are there Children’s and Toddler’s Miranda Rights?
You gave a right to have your mommy present.
At age 5, being bullied, those kids will be compelled to submit by an overwhelming group. Then again, where was the teacher or other ADULT supervision during this time?
Those kids that taunted him should SIGN the Anti-Sexual Harassment paperwork for the verbal peer pressure they put on the 5 yr old. This boy was abused by his other classmates and this is how the school handles it???
Thumbs down for the public education system once more!
Their power over your child is more than disturbing.
If you are a parent, Please remove your child from public (government) schools.
The leftists in our schools shine again! Like a 5 yr old knows?
I agree it should be a nothing event but the school decided to elevate by noting his file with a sexual misconduct. That will follow him throughout his school life and perhaps into later life especially if he becomes a conservative politician and some enterprising Obama type liberal gets access it during an election.
No, it needs be expunged.
This shows the sick mind of government school “educators”. It is inconceivable to them that a five-year-old is not sexual. I guess his mistake was not taking his pants down with another boy.
The teachers are not there for the benefit of your children, nor are they there to protect their rights.
They are there to educate them in the ways and manners of obedience to politically correct dogma. Nothing more.
Assistant superintendent Jim Dean should be stripped of his pension and put in prison.
This is child abuse.
They’re miffed because he wasn’t aborted!
Unfortunately, I’m no longer surprised when parent and child surnames do not match.
It is actually NW Phoenix on US-95 headed towards Kingman.
That was kinda my question. Did they have to explain to the young lad what sexual misconduct is, or did they just go straight to the signing away of rights...
SURPRISE, Ariz shouldn’t be shocked that this is what it has come to.
When I was a kid (back in the far away time called the 80s), everyone would have said “ewwwww”. The girls would have told the playground monitor, and she would have yelled for him to knock it off. or made him sit by the door until recess was over.
Indoctrination Movie -
“No, it needs be expunged.”
Of course, but why was it even considered to begin with?
Maybe the kid’s parents are evil capitalistic conservatives?
one has to wonder about adults who can only see children through the lens of sexual conduct
My little one stripped nekked and hopped into a bathtub at the tile store while I was buying tile lol
these “administrators” are stupid and evil. I emailed them that I saw a bright future for them in the industry and they should all be fired.
leftists really do think kids “perp” on one another and also pedophiles accuse kids of “leading them on”
“Did they have to explain to the young lad what sexual misconduct is,”
That reminds me of the famous cartoon of a little boy and little girl looking down each others shorts and saying..”Wow, there really is a difference.” :)
It was much ado about nothing, but now he knows about the word and will wonder about the deeds. In their attempts to help they have created a situation.
Yes, that's true, much ado about stuff kids have always done. Of course, once the libs get their way, sex education will begin as soon as the child can talk and they'll be fully versed in heterosexual and homosexual se, S & M, the whole nine yards. Gotta fight the power.
The bathroom was so far away...
So we now live in a country where a 5 year old can sign away his rights and in effect, plead guilty to sexual misconduct?
But, if he had a rainbow painted on his butt it would be acceptable.
” once the libs get their way, sex education will begin as soon as the child can talk and they’ll be fully versed in heterosexual and homosexual”
Of course...They will be taught that anything that feels good is cool, and that the sex of the partner does not matter.
Your description is just about what would have happened in the 1930’s too. NOT so today...too bad for the kids!
What is wrong with the world!?
That’s the crazy stuff little 5-year old boys do! My daughters babysat a bunch of little boys down the street, and that’s what one of the boys did, pull down his pants and shake his butt at them.
They thought it was hilarious. They didn’t call the cops.
I just... don’t know anymore. It’s crazy, just crazy out there.
1. The kid had a right to a lawyer.
2. Schools have gotten into the act now too, along with the government: make up frivilous laws and apply them unfairly and unpredictably. This keeps the folks down and teaches them to be sheep.
Are the bullies getting in trouble...?
More to come with a 2017 Clinton administration.
“Five year old kids know nothing about sex, much less sexual misconduct”
I wouldn’t say that. Liberals are all the time sexualizing children with propaganda.
The assistant superintendent is a moron.
Glad I am not young now.
Why am I getting this screen? Double secret probation?
Thank you for your contribution. Your comment has been submitted for review. Return to article.
Get a lawyer. Sue the School District for eight figures. That will get their attention.
If the 5 year old signed the note, then it isn’t legit.
A 5 yr old is not legally able to sign anything. Damn, I hate to say it but they need to sue. These people are unreasonable so suing makes complete sense to me.
At 5, a good case can be made that he can’t READ what he signed, much less understand it.
My younger brother had a friend around his age when he was about 13. The kid was visiting and apparently had gone behind our garage to relieve himself. The area he had chosen was between the garage and a hedge that met the neighbor’s fence.
It was not a terribly tall hedge, but you would not have been able to see him from the neck down if you were in the neighboring yard...unless you were looking from the second floor, which, apparently the woman next door had been doing. She called my mother to complain that the kid was outside “exposing himself”!
My mother, who had already raised my older brothers, knew perfectly well what was going on, and she handled the call well, but she was just astounded at the fact that this woman would react this way because the grumpy neighbor had raised 4 children of her own, and 3 of them were boys.
I did not have any boys, but sister did and my friends did! It seems to me that there is nothing more thrilling for boys then peeing in the great outdoors. Goes for some men I know as well. It’s just a man thing. :)
In my childhood during the 50's, little girls used to pull their dresses up over their heads to show off their underpants. School administrators are by and large morons nowadays.
I agree with that!
My daughter had talked with my granddaughter about cats and how they mark there territory by peeing on it. Later on, she was washing dishes and looked out the window to see the little girl up in a tree with her pants down, marking her territory.
