College Park middle school teacher charged with abuse
A middle school teacher has been arrested in south Fulton County after police say she abused special needs students.
Lavonne Alioth — a teacher at Camp Creek Middle School — has been charged with three felony counts of child cruelty.
Authorities began investigating after the school system received complaints about students being delayed to lunch. An arrest warrant says Alioth deprived a special needs student of adequate food, making him stand in a corner for more than seven hours.
The warrant also claimed that a disabled student was occasionally forced to get into a yoga position and she covered a sheet over another student in a wheelchair for being loud.
Alioth was released on a $24,000 bond.
