Gary’s spouse reaches a plea for assault on lecturers, headmasters | Illinois Information
CROWN POINT, Ind. (AP) – A Gary woman agreed to plead guilty of alleged attacks on an elementary school teacher and school principal after her son disappeared from school in 2018.
32-year-old Latashay Bonner agreed to plead guilty on Tuesday, resulting in moderate and bodily harm. A judge in Lake County has to accept the consent form, which also asks Bonner to undergo anger management and to write letters of apology.
Bonner’s attorney, Matt LaTulip, said his client had no criminal history before or after the September 2018 clashes at Marquette Elementary in Gary, the Merrillville Post-Tribune reported.
In this incident, Bonner entered the school after being told that her son was missing and started yelling and abusing the headmaster in front of the students.
Bonner’s son was soon found outside the school, but prior to that discovery, she pushed the headmaster to the ground and kicked her in the leg, causing her to twist her knee.
When a teacher asked Bonner to leave, she pushed her to the ground, sat on the woman’s hips, hit her repeatedly on the back of the head, and “kicked and stamped” her left hip before it was pulled off.
