WAKE COUNTY, N.C. — A second student has come forward, accusing a Carnage Middle School teacher of abuse.
The latest allegations come after the police department confirmed Tuesday that officers are investigating claims against the special-education teacher.
The mother of 13-year-old Jameel Smith said he was struck while in the teacher's custody. An assistant to the teacher reported the allegations of abuse to a school resource officer, who then notified Raleigh police.
The teacher is suspended with pay. Wake County Schools are also conducting their own internal investigation of the alleged incidents.
