School Employee Arrested on Simple Battery Charge

Jack Talley faces on charge of simple battery after an alleged incident against a 4-year-old student.

A Paulding County School System employee has been arrested in the wake of an alleged Oct. 8 incident at an elementary school.

According to a Paulding County Sheriff’s Office news release, the sheriff’s office’s Crimes Against Children division was notified Oct. 8 of an alleged incident where a pre-kindergarten student at Northside Elementary was improperly restrained as a result of some type of outburst the child had. The child, a 4-year-old, was allegedly improperly restrained by Jack Talley, who worked at the school.

According to reports, other school district employees observed the incident and alerted school administrators. Administrators then contacted the family as well as detectives who immediately began investigating the incident.

After a lengthy investigation and subsequent interviews of witnesses, authorities determined that Talley acted inappropriately in the restraint of the child.

Talley turned himself into the Paulding County Detention Center Monday about 2:20 p.m., where he was charged with misdemeanor simple battery. He was released later that day on a $1,300 bond.

Wow like that is the first time they ever did this to a child in the school system?? A teacher did it to my child and when I complained they did nothing! So I took him out! Good for the parent who is taking action! Keep your hands off of our children!
