Teen Hunter Facing Expulsion Returns To School

posted on May 2, 2015

Sawyer Shepherd will be going to class, playing on the baseball team and even attending tonight’s prom. That’s good news for the high school senior from Missouri who was facing possible expulsion after leaving his disassembled hunting gun in his truck.

An anonymous tip called in to school administrators led to the teen being suspended pending review of his case. While any disciplinary action taken against Shepherd has been kept confidential, he was able to return to regular activities. He’ll also graduate with the rest of his class.

Shepherd’s attorney, Juddson McPherson, credits media exposure of the case for school officials doing the right thing. “We had supporters contact my office from all over the country offering encouragement, support and even financial assistance for legal fees,” McPherson said. “Without the help of supporters, it would have been a more difficult battle to get Sawyer back in school.”
