(WJLA) - The mother of a 6-year-old Colorado boy is furious that her son was suspended from school for kissing another young girl on the hand, something school officials called sexual harassment.

KRDO reports that Hunter Yelton, a first grader in Canon City, Colo., and a young girl had a crush on each other, and they shared a quick peck during class.

Because of that, Hunter now has "sexual harassment" on his permanent record.

"How can you do this? How can you say this about my child?," Jennifer Saunders, Hunter's mother, said. "I'm going to stand up and fight for him because that's not the case, that's not what happened at all."

KRDO says that Hunter admitted that what he did might have been wrong, but his mother says the charge falls well short of what's now on his record.
