BOCA RATON, FL ( (Copyright © 2021 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — A Palm Beach County parent taking part in a federal lawsuit against the Palm Beach County School District over masking was himself charged with child abuse in 2017.

The charge was ultimately dropped, but not before the Palm Beach County School District, and the Jupiter Police Department, both concurred that marks on Victor Nin’s child were concerning enough to arrest the man.

A judge found probable cause on August 31, 2017 and the case continued until the State of Florida ultimately decided not to the pursue the charge. It was unclear Sunday what led prosecutors to move on.

From the probable cause affidavit, which you can read below:

“I responded to (redacted) regarding a possible child abuse complaint. Upon my arrival, I met with three complainants and (a) Palm Beach County School Board Police Officer. Upon speaking with the complainants and the Officer, I was advised a student named (redacted) had left class and went to the nurse’s office regarding back pain. Upon assessing, the complainants observed large red marks and bruising to the upper portion and left side of (his) back. A red mark (possible hand print) was visible on (the child’s) left cheek/face. The complainants asked how he had received the injuries and were advised (by the child) that he had been punched in the back several times and slapped in the face by Victor Nin.”

Continues the police report:

“The complainant then called DCF and the Jupiter Police Department to report the incident. Upon meeting with (the child) in the school office, I could clearly see a red mark on the left side of his cheek/face that appeared to be a hand print.”

Nin is one of several parents now suing the Palm Beach County School District in U.S. District Court, claiming that the school district’s mask mandate is child abuse and violating a parent’s right to determine what is best for their child or children.

The State of Florida decided to NOT prosecute Nin on September 19th, 2017. The arrest report, and booking photo, were not expunged.
