A Vere Technical High School physical education teacher Sashawna Wellington was  suspended by the school pending investigation into the alleged “PVC pipe” beating of  a 13-year-old student athlete Moesha James on November 1.

On Tuesday, November 13, Wellington was arrested and charged with occasioning actual bodily harm and was released on bail. She was supposed to have appeared before the court yesterday in Lionel Town, but the case was not mentioned.

Young James, a promising 800m runner, received damage to her hands and legs during the alleged incident and was instantly transferred from Vere Technical to Hydel High.

Ann-Marie James, mother of Moesha, said she had to take her daughter to the hospital following the beating which left her hands and legs swollen.

According to James, her daughter said she was feeling sick and was sent to her dorm by Wellington, who later called her back onto the field and allegedly beat her with the PVC pipe.

Upon hearing what transpired, James went to the school for clarity, and claimed Wellington admitted beating her daughter.
