Spanish Made Him Puke...

"A Kansas high school student convicted of battery for puking on his Spanish teacher will spend the next four months cleaning up after people who throw up in a police car.

The boy’s lawyer says his client had been nervous about his final exams but other students testified he’d planned it in advance. The teacher says he felt “sort of stunned” when it happened, and notes the student was failing his class." (source)

I rarely say that a punishment is too harsh --but what if the kid was just sick. I would be really upset if my kid was ordered to clean perp puke for four months. The vomit could be from Hep A,B,C drug addicts, etc... There has to be a 'safer' punishment.
