Remember this one? 40-year-old Houston charter school teacher Sheri Lynn Davis makes headlines again this month with new details of the case that’s had families up in arms since the spring quarter of the school year concluded recently.
If you recall, this same teacher was caught on a cell phone video camera beating, slapping and kicking a 13-year-old boy in class on April 29th. She was fired the following week from Jamie’s House Charter School in northwest division of Houston, TX.
Davis has officially been charged with injury to a child, a third-degree felony and could face up to 10 years in prison. She also faces up to a $10,000 fine if convicted, according to the Harris County District Attorney’s Office. Facing charges alongside Davis are three additional employees including the school’s superintendent and founder Ollie Hilliard, the principal David Jones and a teacher who in fact actually witnessed the attack, Gabriel Moseley.
Each are being charged with misdemeanor counts including failure to report child abuse, but each could also face up to one year in Harris County jail and be forced to pay fines of $4,000 individually if convicted.
