Mother says son was trying to defend himself
The mother of a Georgia boy says her son may have committed a "delinquent act" -- but he's not a "delinquent student." A judge sentenced 13-year-old Daryl Gray yesterday to probation and a fine. He was convicted of aggravated battery for stabbing a fellow middle school student in the face with a pencil. Defense lawyers had said the boy was simply striking back after being bullied for two years at school. On NBC's "Today" show, the boy said he didn't like the sentence -- and that he's a "good person." Jeannette Gray tells NBC her son was just trying to defend himself. She says she had asked school officials to help, but they didn't do enough. She says despite her son changing classes, the bullying continued.
