That expert made the decision to Baker Act the child for 72 hours. School officials say that all the proper protocols were followed, but the child’s mother says her child is not the same after her mental evaluation away from her mother.The Baker Act allows authorities to force a psychiatric evaluation on anyone considered to be a danger to themselves or others, but the girl’s mother says her child’s two-day internment did more harm than good.
