If you may recall, back in March, teacher Alicia Brown and teacher aide Drew Faircloth were both accused of abusing 10-year-old Joe Salinas at Wicksburg.

Salinas who has cerebral palsy, parents recorded both teachers talking to him inappropriately.

"The grand jury came out with a no bill on ms. Brown, which means there wasn't enough there to bring any criminal charges against her, the second one on mr. Faircloth that came back as a true bill on harassment," said Captain Gonzalez.

The harassment charge Faircloth faces is a misdemeanor.

We couldn't reach Joe's mom for a comment on the decision.

    So, they are going to just leave her there so that she can mistreat other victims. It is a shame that they did a no bill on this one. She needs to pay for what she did to that child. Bet she did not return any of her pay checks for the period that she mistreated a child that was entrusted to her care. So, that is telling every teacher to treat the children that you are paid to teach any way that you want. Nothing is going to happen to you. If I were those parents, I would SUE. This is a traversty. This is a slap in the face of good teachers, and there are many.
