Easthampton Student Gets Probation

A student at Easthampton High School  is getting pretrial probation for his alleged role in a fight that  started a dialogue on racial tensions at the school.  

Eighteen-year-old  Joshua Brown was charged with aggravated assault and battery and  intimidation of a witness after another student apparently used a racial  slur in a text message, which was then posted to social media, and a  group confronted the student on March 29th.  

Two other juveniles were  also disciplined. 

As part of the probation, Brown must complete a  restorative justice program, refrain from abusing the victim and pay  200-dollars in restitution.
