GYM CLASS-BULLYING
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
PARMA, Ohio


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.

Authorities say other students kicked the 14-year-old boy and dragged him around by his feet in February at Parma Senior High School. Police say the teacher continued class elsewhere in the gym while the teen remained on the floor.

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.
