The judge said the decision was intended for the girl’s own good. “I think you are exactly where you are supposed to be,” Judge Mary Ellen Brennan said to the girl, who is Black. One of the girl’s lawyers said she had attention deficit hyperactivity disorder and received special education services, which made it difficult for her to shift to online education. The girl had been on probation after she pulled her mother’s hair and bit her finger in November, the judge said. The police referred the case to the Oakland County court, and an assault charge was filed against the girl.
