Kevin Straub, 15, was caught beαting the 42 year old Innovative Concept Academy teacher in May of 2013. He was sentenced to 10 years in prison for the grυesome attαck.
The judge in the case acknowledged that Straub was not an adult, but said he committed a man’s crime when he assαulted his teacher.
“According to court documents, surveillance video shows Straub struck a teacher at Innovative Concept Academy multiple times in the face,” KMOV reported.
The beαting was so brυtal that the teacher suffered a stroke and his doctors still aren’t sure if he’ll lose his vision.
The mother in law of the teacher, who has not been identified, says he is a good man and father. He was supervising students on in school suspension at the time of the attαck.
“It absolutely was a brutal crime and it happened in a school which is so troubling about the whole thing,” said Prosecutor Jeffrey Ernst.
“Innovative Concept Academy is the only school in America overseen by a court system. It works to educate and rehabilitate delinquent teens,” PIX 11 reports. The school promises troubled teens “a real chance” at life.
“It was very hard on me,” said the victim’s mother. “He should be put away someplace where he won’t hurt anyone else.”
She says the injured man’s life has degenerated since the attαck and he’s no longer able to play basketball with his sons, FOX 2 News reports.
