(WESH) An 18-year-old Florida high school student says he was suspended for posing in gay pornography, a job he holds to support his mother.
According to Cocoa High School officials, Robert Marucci will be allowed back in school Wednesday, and administrators deny the suspension last week was over porn.
When campus monitors, when deans hear things that are of concern, we err on the side of caution and make sure that we take everything seriously," said Michelle Irwin, public information officer for Brevard County Schools. "This has nothing to do with his job. The time off of school had nothing to do with his career he has chosen. It really had to do with statements that were overheard."
Support is growing for Marucci, and a Facebook page was created to support his cause. His friends say he was bullied and students were sharing his pictures.
