Fla. student's suspension lifted for involvement in adult films
A high school student in Florida is heading back to school Wednesday after being briefly suspended.
The 18-year-old student was making adult videos and pornographic movies to support his family. Robert Marucci says once news of his 'side job' was discovered, other students bullied him. School administrators said they suspended him because he threatened other students for the bullying.
However, Marucci says that was not true. Once the suspension was announced, dozens of students staged a walkout to protest it. School district administrators eventually issued a statement saying it was not appropriate to suspend Marucci. He will return to school on Wednesday. Marucci's mother stands by him, saying he did the films to support her.
