A father has filed a $10.5million lawsuit against his son’s school, claiming the ‘repeated abuse’ the 18-year-old special needs student suffered at the hands of his teachers led to his death.

Aaron Hatcher, who had muscular dystrophy and cerebral palsy, could not speak or walk. His father Ronald, from Atlanta, Georgia, claims a teacher at Roswell High School forced the teen to wear a homemade neck brace, causing physical and mental suffering.

The father's attorney, Trey Sauls, said the tightened brace obstructed Aaron's breathing and contributed to his death last year.
