Woman arrested after filing complaints of bullying at school

Posted: Updated:

Rhonda Pitre, 26, says she moved 12 years ago to Houston to make a better life for herself.

Along the way she ended up locked up behind bars and charged with aggravated assault. The alleged victim was a 12-year-old girl.

Pitre says, "this has torn my life apart. I have lost my sister she's gone back to Louisiana and my niece is gone back to Louisiana and my kids say everyday my Momma going to jail for something she didn't do...this is a nightmare, the honest to God truth a nightmare I live in."

To understand this story we have to go back to January when Pitre says she moved her 13-year-old sister from Louisiana and enrolled her here at Ridgemont Elementary in Fort Bend ISD. She had full custody of the young girl. She says everything was fine for Hannah Walden until she became the victim of bullying by a 12-year-old female student at the school.

"I told them it was time for them to do something about this bullying they told me they had everything under control before I could do an assault on the little girl they take me in," says Pitre.

Pitre says last month her sister was left with a swollen forehead and cut on her neck as you can see here - allegedly at hands of the bully.

But Pitre claims the 12-year-old bully flipped the script on her. She says the young girl told Houston Police Pitre followed her home the day after the school fight and attacked her on this street - January 28. The elementary student also said Pitre pulled a gun on her. The mother of two who also at the time was caring for a niece and that little sister was arrested for aggravated assault and possession of a weapon. Did she do it? Is she now the bully?

She says, "I've never been in trouble a day in my life and I sat in jail for 9 days on a charge I have no idea I never came in contact with this child she's 12 years old and she's bigger than me."

HPD confirms they arrested Pitre solely off the word of the 12-year-old - and there were no physical injuries - but as far as a gun - Jodi Silva with HPD says one was recovered from Pitre's Missouri City Home.

She says, "they threw out the unlawfully carrying a weapon they threw that out because I did not have no gun on me."

While Pitre was in jail for 9 days her little sister was taken back to Louisiana by family and she's stuck with an uncertain fate...A woman who complained about schoolyard bullying is now being seen as the bully of a 12 year old girl.

"I want this to go away I want her to come forward and say she accidentally made up a lie," says Pitre.

A spokesperson for Fort Bend ISD says they're not commenting on the case because it happened off campus and is being handled by HPD.
