A longtime Jasper, Texas, teacher was arrested after being accused of forcing a kindergarten student to eat his own feces.

What are the details?

A Jasper County grand jury indicted 67-year-old Mamie Robinson Aplon on Thursday after she was accused of making a child eat his own feces in September.

Aplon, a teacher at Few Primary School in Jasper, was charged with one Class A misdemeanor count of official oppression, according to KTHV-TV.

The indictment said that Aplon “did then and there intentionally subject E.J. to mistreatment that the defendant knew was unlawful, namely causing E.J. to eat his own feces, and the defendant was then and there acting under the color of her employment as an educator.”
