A 55-year-old teacher has been arrested for child abuse after allegations surfaced that she pulled the hair and ears of a child with special needs, authorities said.

Sherri Evans Robinson, an outstanding student education teacher at Wildwood Elementary School, was jailed at the Sumter County Detention Center on Thursday and charged with cruelty to children without grievous bodily harm, authorities said. The school is approximately 50 miles northwest of Orlando, Florida.

“Robinson would pull a special needs child’s hair and ears to comply, knowing it would cause pain and discomfort to the child,” police said.
