A speech therapist at Ferry Pass Middle School is pressing charges against a 13-year-old autistic student who hit her in the head with a set of headphones.
Kathy Roupe, 57, of Pensacola filed felony battery charges against Conner Brown, whom she told deputies hit her in the head “with so much force, it felt like my skull cracked.”
Conner was booked and fingerprinted Jan. 2 at the Escambia County Sheriff’s Office on a charge of battery on a public or private education employee, a third-degree felony. His arraignment is scheduled for today at the Escambia Regional Juvenile Justice Center.
A message left for Roupe was not returned.
