school teacher Sierra Pettway is accused of tying two students' arms together
with masking tape.
A Phenix City detective
testified the children were tied together for 10 to 15 minutes.

back teaching," said defense attorney W. Don Eddins. "She is not a threat to
society. She made a mistake. If what she's accused of is proven to be true then

crime against somebody."
The two counts of felony willful
abuse can carry a sentence of 20 years in prison.
The defense argued for the
charges to be reduced to misdemeanor harassment.
