Las Vegas Special Education Teacher Hit Students In Class

A judge says he'll review transcripts and hear closing arguments before deciding whether to bind a Las Vegas special education teacher over for trial on felony child abuse and neglect charges.

Two teacher's aides testified Wednesday that they saw Mamie Hubbard-Washington hit, pinch, push and verbally abuse students, including some with autism who do not speak.

Parents testified Sept. 26 about their children coming home with bruises from Hubbard-Washington's class at Reed Elementary School.

Hubbard-Washington, 64, is on leave from the Clark County School District. She remains free without bail.

Justice of the Peace William Jansen scheduled closing arguments Oct. 31.
