Ohio mom accused in teens' school fight indicted

Posted: Updated:

CINCINNATI (AP) - A Cincinnati woman accused of helping her daughter beat another teenage girl inside a high school classroom has been indicted on misdemeanor charges including assault.

Hamilton County prosecutors say 31-year-old Precious Allen was indicted Thursday on assault and trespassing charges. She had initially faced more serious felony charges.

Police said Allen held the victim down and told her 14-year-old daughter to hit the girl with a combination lock. Police say the victim suffered cuts and bruises.

Allen's daughter allegedly gave a teacher a black eye in the same scuffle.

Allen maintains the alleged victim attacked her and her daughter Feb. 7 at Withrow High School and that the teen was bigger and taller than them.

Allen's attorney says he expects her to be found innocent.
