Student charged after classmate says he groped her
A student at Hernando High School has been accused of repeatedly groping the breasts of a classmate in recent weeks over her objections. Marvin Fulks, 18, of Brooksville, on several occasions reached inside the girl's clothing and touched her, according to a Hernando County Sheriff's report. The girl told him to stop, the report stated, but he told her to shut up and then called her derogatory names. The girl told a deputy that this behavior had been going on for about two weeks. Fulks later admitted to the deputy that he touched the girl several times without her consent, the report states. Fulks was arrested on campus Thursday morning on a charge of lewd and lascivious behavior toward a child.
