DEVELOPING ON 6: Former Copeland Elementary School Teacher Facing Child Cruelty Charge

A former teacher at Copeland Elementary School teacher is now facing a cruelty to children charge in the second degree.

Francine Wynn is accused of locking one of her Pre-K students in a closet in her classroom. The 4-year-old boy's mother said that it happened over a course of several months…and that he wasn't allowed to come out of the closet until he stopped crying.

The Richmond County Board of Education immediately took Wynn out of the classroom and put her in a different paid position upon hearing of the accusations.
