Kelly Lewis, a special education teacher at Frey Elementary School in Cobb County, Georgia, has been arrested on charges of cruelty to children after she allegedly forced a five-year-old sit in their own waste for hours, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
Prosecutors say Lewis committed the felony in order to “prove a point” about using the bathroom.
She allegedly left the child sitting uncleaned for two hours.
The charging documents stated that “said child did suffer redness and irritation to his buttocks as well as mental pain as a result of the teachers actions.”
Lewis has been placed on administrative leave, according to the school district.
