Hearing on order of protection is postponed until Jan. 7

Saturday, December 27, 2008

A hearing relating to a Petition for an Order of Child Protection that the parent of a Sheldon student filed has been postponed until Jan. 7, at 10 a.m., in a Vernon County court.

In the petition, Roger Huggins said his son was pushed against a desk and struck with an eraser by his fifth-grade teacher Jackie Allen on Nov. 12.

Huggins said that the hearing was postponed because court officials could not contact Allen to serve the court papers to her.

"They postponed it to give her an opportunity to show up," Huggins said.
