Marston Riley, a music teacher, was telling the 14 year old boy to leave class because he wasn’t wearing the proper uniform required to be in band class. The 14 year old white boy started to continuously call the teacher the N word.

The teacher was then arrested on Child Abuse charges.
The students in class came out in support of Riley, saying that the student kept harassing the teacher and physically assaulting him with items.

He sent in a video to Cecilia Diaz thanking her for the GoFundMe page, and thanking every person who’s currently helping him out right now.
Cecilia’s last update on the GoFundMe reads,
Mr. Riley was released earlier today. However, I will keep this GoFundMe because he is going to need all the help he can get. Be mindful that the school district is looking at dismissing him and I would not doubt if the student’s parents are looking into pressing criminal charges. I am sure Mr. Riley will need money to pay any fines, fees and lawyers. For those who continue to donate, Thank you!
