Mother Sues Chicago Schools For Handcuffing Her 6 Year Old Over Candy

By Victor Trammell

The mother of a 6-year-old daughter in the Chicago public district is seeking justice after her child was handcuffed for a very questionable reason at school.

According to ABC 7, a local Chicago news outlet, Marlena Wordlow, the mother of the schoolgirl who was handcuffed has filed a lawsuit against Chicago Public Schools (CPS). The incident occurred this past March at Fernwood Elementary School in Chicago.

A school security guard forcibly apprehended 6-year-old Madisyn Moore (pictured) after she was accused of taking a piece of candy off a teacher’s desk, according to reports.

“He was pulling Madisyn from under the stairs with her hands behind her back. I don’t know how long she was under there, but she was sweating. She still had on a jacket. It was warm outside, so I’m trying to figure out why she still had her jacket on,” Wordlow said in an interview.

Wordlow’s lawsuit against CPS claims her daughter was falsely imprisoned, forcibly handled physically, and terrified during the ordeal. Wordlow says her daughter is still traumatized after the incident and shows fear of anyone she sees in a security or law enforcement uniform.

Wordlow took her child out of Fernwood Elementary School after this incident and says that CPS did not assist her at all in helping to find her daughter another school to attend.

“I would like to know why he hasn’t been prosecuted. This is a battery. This is false imprisonment,” said Jeffrey Granich, an attorney representing Wordlow in a media interview.

CPS fired the security guard who handcuffed Moore and left a “do not hire” notice in his personal file for administrative purposes. However, the security officer did not face any formal charges after the incident and did not have to deal with any legal action taken against him.

“The Chicago Public Schools system has a responsibility to make sure nothing like this happens again,” Granich also said.
