Bully boy mum rap.

A SINGLE mum faces 10 years in jail after being charged over her son's suicide from bullying.

Judith Scruggs, 52, is accused of failing to stop other boys bullying Daniel at the Washington Middle School where she worked as a teacher's assistant.

The 12-year-old, who was picked on because he was small, scruffily dressed and smelt, hanged himself in a bedroom cupboard at his home in Meriden, Connecticut.

Lisa Toomey, who is leading a protest group, said: "They will always try to revictimise the victim. If she is convicted it will be a terrible injustice."
