A Forest couple has filed a criminal complaint alleging Riverdale teacher Barb Williams physically abused their child, their attorney said.
The Blanton family’s son was in Williams’ kindergarten class during the 2011-12 school year. The boy suffers from a disability and recently informed a doctor Williams physically abused him, said attorney Dan Margolis.
The Hancock County Sheriff’s Office declined to make the complaint available. Sheriff Michael Heldman could not yet be reached for comment.
School surveillance footage last month caught Williams pushing 6-year-old Ian Nelson and picking him up by his shirt and face. Williams has pleaded not guilty to child endangerment in Findlay Municipal Court.
