Do you think she deserves jail time ... or was she just trying to teach him a lesson?

Sylvia Tagle special needs teacher abuses student

According to the Associated Press, a Florida jury has found a Miami-area special needs teacher guilty of abuse after police say she put hot sauce in an autistic student's soda.

Sylvia Tagle was convicted Tuesday. She allegedly gave the spiked soda to the student to "teach him a lesson." She says the boy grabbed the soda from her desk when she was with other students.

"She maintains her innocence," said attorney Ronald Manto. "She believes that she gave her life's work to working with autistic children, and she did a lot of good work, and that she did not do anything wrong."

She faces a maximum of five years in jail, and will be sentenced in October.

This reminds us of the kindergarten teacher who had students vote whether an autistic 5-year-old boy should be allowed to stay in class or not. Unacceptable!

I truly loved this post. You describe this topic very well. When hiring home contractors it is answer to choose a trusted name in construction. Experienced and efficient staff should strive for excellence and seriously consider every detail of your house.
