“Unfortunately, our daughter was physically assaulted the first week of school when she returned this year and that one was mishandled as well,” he mentioned. “Ninety days later, we finally got charges and that court case starts next week. It’s a felony malicious wounding.”

Smith didn’t elaborate on the second sexual assault.
