Salecia Johnson is the six-year-old from Milledgeville who was handcuffed at Creekside Elementary School after throwing a tantrum.
Salecia's story was reported around the world.
6-Year-Old Handcuffed: Milledgeville police handcuffed an elementary school student for safety after she threw a tantrum.
More than three months later, Salecia and her family have relocated. But her mother says they can't shake off what happened.
"Salecia, after the incident she has sleepless nights sometimes. It's 3 a.m, 4 a.m. before she falls asleep," says Constance Ruff, her mother.
According to the Milledgeville police incident report, the kindergartner tore items off the walls, bit a doorknob, and kicked a shelf, injuring the principal. That led an officer to handcuff Salecia and take her into custody. She was released later that day.
Constance says her daughter finished the school year at Blandy Hill Elementary. They have since relocated to a town they asked 13WMAZ not to identify.
Salecia's mother, and her aunt, Canduce Ruff, are still critical of how Creekside and police handled the situation.
"No child should be handcuffed, no matter the way they acted. I think no child should be punished in that way," says Candace.
Candace says she has no regrets about contacting the media when Salecia was handcuffed at Creekside. But there have consequences. They only return to Milledgeville to visit Salecia's aunt.
After relocating, Constance enrolled Salecia into her third school in less than a year. Now her daughter is in counseling and preparing for a new school year.
