Lewiston Man Pleads Guilty To Slapping, Kicking And Tripping Children At Son's School

Posted: Updated:

LEWISTON, Idaho (AP) - A north-central Idaho man charged with slapping, kicking and tripping children in his son's fifth-grade class has pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor charge of injury to a child.
    
The Lewiston Tribune reports (http://bit.ly/ZGUgNi ) Magistrate Stephen L. Calhoun sentenced 35-year-old Byron S. Edwards of Reubens to 90 days in jail on Tuesday. Calhoun suspended a $500 fine and 60 days of the jail sentence. He gave Edwards credit for 19 days served.
    
Court records say Edwards was at Highland Elementary School in Craigmont on Dec. 17. The substitute teacher told investigators Edwards tripped one student, put another in a headlock for about 10 seconds while dragging the child out of the classroom. Edwards allegedly slapped another child, kicked another student and used profanity.
