Former Wake Teacher Charged With Assault Against Student

Posted May 16, 2006 7:56 a.m. EDT

— A former Wake County middle school teacher now faces multiple charges for the alleged assault of a student.

Christina Wolfe was charged with four misdemeanors; two counts each of simple assault of a handicapped person and of child abuse.

Wolfe was suspended from her special-education teaching position at Carnage Middle School after the parents of a 13-year-old autistic child said she had struck him several times during the past year.

More children have come forward since the initial accusation with similar charges. Wolfe resigned from her teaching position earlier this month.

Authorities say the investigation is continuing.
