NEW HARTFORD, N.Y. – A teacher’s assistant at Oneida-Herkimer-Madison BOCES in New Hartford was arrested Friday for allegedly paying a student $50 to punch another student.
Lisa A. Hutchinson, 41, is charged with two counts of endangering the welfare of a child.
Oneida County Sheriff Robert Maciol says Hutchinson paid the student, but the child did not follow through with her request to hit the other student.
Hutchinson was released on an appearance ticket.
She will return to New Hartford Town Court for arraignment at a later date.
