11-year-old with Autism committed under Baker Act at local middle school | WPEC

BOCA RATON, Fla. (WPEC) – A local family is speaking out after they say a School District Police Officer unfairly invoked the Baker Act and took their child away from school in handcuffs. Larissa Leander has been helping her immigrant friend, Ayme, take care of her son Erik for years. Because Ayme’s English is not strong, Leander often helps her navigate school meetings for 11-year-old Erik who is on a special 504 learning plan at Omni Middle School in Boca Raton.
