DEERFIELD, FL (WFLX) - Michael Brewer is goes back to school Wednesday. The 15-year-old Deerfield boy spent months in the hospital after his peers doused him with alcohol and set him on fire.

The three teens charged in the case will face trial as adults.

Brewer won't be going back to Deerfield Beach Middle for fear of any backlash following the attack; instead, he'll be attending school in Palm Beach County.
