ACWORTH, Ga. (WGHP) -- A Georgia special education teacher faces a felony charge of cruelty to children after she allegedly made a boy who had defecated in his pants sit in his own waste.
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that Kelly Lewis made the 5-year-old Frey Elementary School student sit in his soiled pants for nearly two hours on Nov. 21.
Witnesses told investigators that Lewis wanted to “prove a point” about restroom habits, the paper reports.
“Said child did suffer redness and irritation to his buttocks as well as mental pain as a result of the teacher’s actions,” according to an arrest warrant obtained by the Marietta Daily Journal.
Cobb County sheriff’s deputies arrested the 56-year-old teacher Dec. 4.
