Berlin High School student sent to juvenile detention center
Updated: Feb 20, 2019
A Berlin High School student was arrested last Thursday after an altercation with the school resource officer.
The 15-year-old Anna Miller says she was stopped by the principal for a dress code violation for showing her shoulders. Her mother, Theresa Miller, said she then had a t-shirt made for her daughter in protest of the rules, which caused another violation.
Miller says when Anna tried to call her after this second violation, the school resource officer tried to take her phone. But Anna raised her foot, which caused her to kick the officer.
She was taken to court, then to the Regional Juvenile Detention Center, where she stayed until this past Tuesday when she was released on house arrest.
