Mother Attacks Child's Teacher

"A woman convicted of beating and kicking her daughter's teacher in front of the girl's seventh-grade class was sentenced to six months in jail. Paulette Baines, 45, was convicted Wednesday of felony assault on a public servant. At her sentencing Thursday, she also was fined $800 (€629) and ordered to pay $14,000 (€11,000) restitution to Mary Oliver.

Baines, a high school teacher, walked into Oliver's science classroom, grabbed Oliver's hair and dragged her across the room while punching her in the face and kicking her, Oliver testified. The April 2005 attack occurred because Baines was angry about Oliver confronting her daughter for being in the hallway without permission, Oliver testified. Baines was fired after the incident."
