Ohio mom accused in teens' school fight indicted

CINCINNATI (AP) — A Cincinnati woman accused of helping her daughter beat another teenage girl at a high school has been indicted on misdemeanor charges of assault and aggravated trespassing.

The Hamilton County prosecutor's spokeswoman says 31-year-old Precious Allen was indicted Thursday. She had been arrested on felony assault and trespassing charges.

Police said Allen held a teen down and told her 14-year-old daughter to hit the girl with a combination lock. Police say the victim was punched and kicked, suffering cuts and bruises.

Police also say Allen's daughter gave a teacher a black eye.

Allen said that the teenage girl attacked her and her daughter Feb. 7 at Withrow High School and that the teen was bigger and taller than them.

Allen's attorney says he expects her to be found innocent.
