Attorney for northeast Ohio teacher wants to review video of alleged bullying of disabled boy
Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Wednesday, April 16, 2014 4:19 PM EDT
An attorney says video footage could help show that a substitute teacher isn't guilty of a child endangering charge stemming from allegations that a developmentally disabled teenager was struck and bullied in gym class at a suburban Cleveland school.
The instructor, 49-year-old Gregg Mellinger, has pleaded not guilty.
The Northeast Ohio Media Group reports defense attorney Ian Friedman has asked for 30 days to review video of what happened. Friedman says he thinks the video will support Mellinger's not-guilty plea.
Authorities have said the boy wasn't seriously hurt.
