Teacher Who Struck Student With Stone Fined 20k


The Clare Hall Secondary School Teacher who struck a student in the head with a stone two years ago has been fined and given a suspended sentence.

Vendiz Charles has been ordered to pay Ackeem Scotland 20 thousand dollars.

Charles threw a stone that fractured the child’s skull.

Scotland was riding his bike up around the corridor performing stunts.

According to reports, the Physics teacher says he didn’t intend to hurt anyone but acknowledges he knew that by throwing the stone, the action could have resulted in harm.

He pleaded guilty to inflicting grievous bodily harm last December.

Charles apologized to Scotland and his mother.

Charles was sentenced 18 months in prison with an 18-month suspension.

He won’t go to jail unless he commits another offence within the next year and a half.

  1. Too bad he didn’t miss when he threw the rock. This all could have been avoided if the offending students had been behaving or had moved away to do their wheelies. It is getting to the point where Police should be assigned to each school round the clock with all the vandalism and bad behavior as well as the young people being “groomed” by predatory older men. There needs to be some support to hand for teachers when stuff like this happens.
