LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The Jefferson County Public Schools assistant principal accused of literally kicking a student in the rear end will not be prosecuted. 

The Jefferson County Attorney's office dropped the charges against Western High School Assistant Principal Brian Raho.

In February, court records say Raho repeatedly kicked a student in the rear end while he was being restrained by two other staff members after a fight. The student wasn't hurt.

On Monday, the teen's attorney spoke out. Apparently, the family had no idea the case was going away -- and their attorney says he wasn't notified either. 

"We want the charge reinstated," said attorney Aubrey Williams. "We want the county attorney to explain to my clients -- to me and to this community -- why he would do this and show that kind of disrespect to this family."

There has been no comment yet from the County Attorney.
