Teen Pleads Not Guilty In School Hallway Assault Incident in Franklin

FRANKLIN, Mass. (AP) — A 17-year-old Franklin teen has pleaded not guilty to aggravated assault and battery in connection with a hallway assault on another student at Franklin High School that was videotaped and briefly posted online.

A Wrentham District Court judge ordered $1,500 bail for David Salmon on Monday, ordered him to stay away from the school and the alleged victim, and to return to court June 26.

Authorities say a second teen is expected to be charged and appear in court at a later date.

The video taken Thursday shows a student walking in the hallway getting punched by another boy.

The victim, 18-year-old Cory Pingeton, was taken to a hospital and has broken bones in his eye and a swollen retina. He tells the Milford Daily News he was taken by surprise.
