The Shelbyville Times-Gazette reports the teacher in whose class he worked has been charged for failing to report the incidents.
W. Bret Lawrence, 53, of Lantern Lane “confined the child to his desk” last Tuesday and, during the incident, “bruised him on his left side,” Detective Charles Kimbril of the Bedford County Sheriff’s Department said.
Lawrence was arrested Friday after allegedly slapping the child.
Sonya Smith of Murfreesboro, the teacher in the class, was charged Tuesday. Smith was aware of the alleged abuse but did not report the incidents to supervisors, Kimbril said.
