School reinstates 18-year-old expelled for doing porn
COCOA, Fla. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - A Florida high school student is back at school after being expelled for acting in pornography.
Two weeks ago, classmates found pictures of 18-year-old Robert Marucci on an adult website.
That's when Marucci says he became the target of threats and bullying.
The administration suspended him, saying he was a disruption and was making threats himself.
Marucci's mother Melyssa Lieb, knew about her son's work in porn, which he says he did to support her.
"I think he's the most awesome person in the world," she said. "He stood up and he was the man of the house when I couldn't be."
Lieb says her son was suspended because of the moral beliefs of the principal, who didn't do anything to stop the bullies.
On Wednesday, the district concluded its investigation and determined it was wrong to kick Marucci out.
