Jamie Rathburn is in legal trouble after confronting her son's bullying.
"I do not regret that I made myself strong for my child," she says. "I regret how I did it."
She says that there has been bullying on her son at the Greenbrier Elementary School all year round. Although she was contacted by e-mail and had meetings with faculty and administrators at the school in Greenville, South Carolina, she said it had not changed.
The last problem was when administrators separated their son from other students for his protection. She said her son had gone everywhere, his teacher had followed him, including lunch and playground.
And when Rathburn says she lost her, "cool card".
"I went straight to this school [and] and told these kids that bullying is not okay," she told CNN. "If they wanted to continue, I had to talk to their mother because the school did nothing."
She says she also cursed her son's teacher and the headmaster. A police report received from CNN confirms her account.
"The appropriate response to the disaster with a response from the school is to have a conversation with the responsible adults," said Elizabeth Brotherton, district communications director, to CNN in an e-mail. "Ms. Rathburn did not go to school and faced a certain bully or bullshit, yelling at and threatening dozens of eight- and nine-year-old boys and girls because she did not know who she was looking for."
According to Brotherton, the school was aware of bullying allegations and teachers and school administrators had met with Rathburn. The teacher regularly sent information about her son to Rathburn, keeping an eye on him and those charged with mobbing. Brotherton said
The school district said they were unwilling to publish how the alleged bullies were punished had violated the privacy of another family. This was one of Rathburn's frustrations, according to Brotherton.
Four days after she had run into it, Rathburn was arrested and arrested in Greenville County Prison on charges that he did not bother, disturb, or interfere with graduate schools. The police became aware of the whole ordeal through a Facebook video, which Rathburn had posted after the incident and then deleted.
After the incident, Brotherton announced that the district had issued a disclaimer for Rathburn, which prevented her from being closed to all schools in Greenville County because she entered the school illegally ̵
The South Carolina Act classifies the crime as an offense, and if found guilty could impose a fine of up to $ 2,000 and / or imprisonment for one year.
In hindsight, Rathburn says she regrets her actions but does not support her son.
"I owe an apology to staff, parents, and students – absolutely," says Rathburn. "My actions were wrong, for a reason or not, when I put myself in their position, I can understand how someone would be upset."
In the meantime, she files her documents and sets up a fundraising campaign for her legal fees and trying to find a lawyer to help.
Her first court date is next week.
