Via the Lexington Herald-Leader:
A gay student who said three classmates tried to kill her won't return to Jackson County High School this year, her mother said Thursday.
Dee Johnson said she is concerned her daughter, Cheyenne Williams, wouldn't be safe if she returned to finish her senior year.
Even if the girls accused of attacking Williams weren't back at school, some of their friends would be, Johnson said. Johnson said her daughter has enough credits to graduate.
