A 6-year-old boy has been suspended from a Colorado school for kissing a girl on the cheek.

School officials in Canon City are accusing Hunter Yelton of sexual harassment and they want it on his school record.

"They sent me to the office, fair and square. I did something wrong and I feel sorry” - Hunter Yelton

The boy's mother tells KRDO her son was suspended once before for kissing the girl and had disciplinary problems, but the girl did not object to being kissed. She told the station that the two children like each other.

"They sent me to the office, fair and square. I did something wrong and I feel sorry," Yelton told the station.

A School District RE-1 official says the repeat offenses meet the school policy definition of sexual harassment and they hope the tough standards will force the boy to change his behavior.

Yelton's mother, Jennifer Saunders, wants sexual harassment removed from his record.

"I'm going to stand up and fight for him because that's not the case, that's not what happened at all," she told the station.
