Florida teen porn star can return to school after suspension

An 18-year-old Florida student is set to return to class Wednesday after he says he was suspended when school officials learned of his pornographic online photos and videos.

Robert Marucci, a senior at Cocoa High School in Cocoa, Florida, told CNN affiliate WKMG that he picked up his X-rated gig to help his mom pay the bills.

His mom, Melyssa Lieb, said when students discovered the explicit material online, her son became a target. “He was bullied, he was threatened.”

Then, according to Lieb, her son was suspended, because the principal didn’t approve of his after-school activities.

Lieb told CNN affiliate WPLG, “I think that it is Dr. (Stephanie) Soliven’s morals and her personal beliefs and I don’t think that this is anybody’s business except for my son’s. The children at the school found (the porn), and she didn’t do anything to stop it.”

According to WPLG, Lieb said the principal told her, “He was expelled due to his explicit lifestyle career.”

Brevard County Schools spokeswoman Michelle Irwin disputed the mother’s account, saying that although a campus monitor overheard the chatter surrounding Marucci and his work, Marucci wasn’t suspended as a result of his explicit videos. Instead he was suspended because of an investigation of the teen and “possible threats” he made, she said.

Irwin told CNN Tuesday that Soliven, the principal, never had a conversation with Marucci’s mother indicating her disapproval of his lifestyle and only offered resources to the teen in support of his “alternative lifestyle.”

After a four-day suspension, school administrators cleared Marucci of any suspicion Monday, and he will be allowed to return to school Wednesday, according to Irwin. Irwin also said that she wasn’t aware of any bullying of Marucci and that the student never filed any formal bullying complaints.

    I want to know what witness she is using saying he threatened to bring weapons to school because it sure sounds like it was not other students?
    You hear enough about family values and taking responsibilities and young people lacking these things while he shows both of these In that he is supporting his family and trying to take care of his family and being responsible enough to take responsibility for his actions even while being punished for doing so. This teaches the kids to hide from what they are doing

    Aren’t they supposed to tell you what your child has done wrong when they’re suspended. The other women is saying that the principal never talked the mother, which I think is a bunch of bull crap to cover their asses. They don’t want to look wrong in public eye. But they know they were wrong to make it a school situation because it isn’t a school situation. It was done off of school grounds so it’s none of their or anyone’s business.

    His mom should be proud of him. Maybe he will get HIV. Then she will have something
    to talk about at the hairdressers.
