Mom says teacher re-pierced kid's ears

A Pennsylvania mom said her little girl came home with newly pierced ears that were allegedly re-pierced by a teacher.

The mother, named Amanda, said her 7-year-old had her ears pierced when she was about 3. But after a week, the girl let them close up.

Since then, she's only worn clip-ons, occasionally.

That's why Amanda was so confused when her daughter came home from school earlier this month with bruises on her lobes and freshly pierced ears.

Amanda said her child confessed that the teacher allegedly pushed the posts through the closed holes, despite the girl saying "ouch."

The mom said she has since contacted the District Attorney's office and police, but officials wouldn't discuss the case.

Amanda is now waiting to hear how or if the teacher will be disciplined.
