Former teacher’s sentence for child abuse upheld
    2019-06-19  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

BEIJING’S No. 3 Intermediate People’s Court on June 11 upheld the sentence of a former kindergarten teacher, surnamed Liu, to 18 months in jail for child abuse and ordered the teacher to be banned from working in child care for five years, Beijing Evening News reported yesterday.

After a second trial, the court ruled that Liu failed to shoulder her responsibility of looking after, protecting and educating students, and used needles to hurt children. Her behavior breached the criminal law against abusing children.

Liu was sentenced to jail Dec. 28 last year after using needle-like objects to “discipline” four students in November 2017, “which brought physical and psychological damage to the children,” according to the court.

Liu appealed to the intermediate people’s court and said the investigators used illegal methods to obtain her confession of guilt. Her colleagues and four victims didn’t testify and she asked the court to acquit her due to lack of evidence.

The Beijing No. 3 Intermediate Court accessed the police’s interrogation video of Liu, showing that Liu confessed voluntarily without coercion with a handwritten confession provided. Four victims and parents also had filed relevant charges.

Liu, who worked at the Beijing RYB kindergarten in Chaoyang District’s Xintiandi Community, was detained Dec. 29, 2017, after the parents of four children, all aged around 3, found needle marks on their kids’ bodies.

Prosecutors charged her with child abuse in May last year.
