A DeQuincy woman, Mary A. Jordan, is charged with cruelty to a juvenile after the Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office was called to a school in DeQunicy on March 22.
School officials called the sheriff's office after they discovered one of the students had possibly been abused. "Upon arrival, deputies discovered Jordan struck the victim on his back with a belt, causing multiple severe bruises," spokesperson Kim Myers said. She has been released on a $15,000 bond set by Judge Robert Wyatt.
