Texas Teacher, 2 Aides Facing Abuse Charges. They Allegedly Locked A 5-Year Old Special Needs Boy In 'Isolation Room, Where He Injured Himself, Was Not Fed And Ingested His Own Feces And Urine

A Texas teacher & 2 aides have been arrested for allegedly abusing a 5-year-old special needs boy in 2021.

3 instructors employed at the Liberty Independent School District were taken into custody in mid-November for alleged crimes committed during an alleged shocking incident on April 15, 2021. Teacher Melody Michel LaPointe, 47, & teaching assistants Tarah Michelle Tinney, 33, & Augusta Danielle Costlow, 27, were charged with 4 counts each of abandoning or endangering a child in imminent danger of bodily injury, a second-degree felony.

All 3 women were booked into the Liberty County Jail & their bond was set at $60,000 each. All 3 are reportedly out on bond.

The teacher & aides are accused of isolating a special needs student in a room at a Liberty Independent School District facility. The 5-year-old boy was deprived of food & began eating his own feces & drinking his own urine.

The 3 instructors were reportedly responsible for the care of the young victim.

The indictment identified the victim as "R.W.," & stated the instructors “intentionally abandoned [R.W.] in a place under circumstances that exposed [R.W.] to an unreasonable risk of harm & under circumstances that a reasonable person would believe would place the child in imminent danger of death, bodily injury, or physical or mental impairment.”

Law & Crime reported, "The document explains that the alleged conduct involved confining R.W. 'to an isolation room where he fell causing bodily injury' & then failing to 'voluntarily deliver the child to a designated emergency infant care provider' as required by law."
