Yesterday, the Rutherford Institute filed an appeal in Spotsylvania Circuit Court on behalf of Spotsylvania High School freshman Andrew Mikel II who was expelled for the rest of this school year.
Producers with the ABC-TV program, “The View,” have expressed interest in having Andrew appear on the program, Nisha Whitehead of the Rutherford Institute said this week.
Details aren’t yet finalized but the Spotsylvania County teen could appear on Tuesday (Feb. 15).
Andrew was expelled and charged with misdemeanor assault after shooting plastic pellets through a tube at fellow students.
