  • A mother has broken her silence regarding a child abuse investigation at a local elementary school, where a special education teacher is accused of abusing multiple students as a form of discipline. The principal at Gerheim Elementary was reassigned earlier this year amid two child abuse investigations, although formal charges have not yet been filed. Sabrina Bell, the mother of one of the abused students, is grateful for the whistleblower who exposed the alleged abuse and encourages others to come forward. In a lawsuit filed in federal court, Katherine Fitzgerald is accused of physically restraining Bell's daughter, Bailey Ray, by grabbing her wrist or hand and pinching and squeezing her in between her index finger and thumb. Bailey, a five-year-old nonverbal autistic child, experienced physical pain as a result of the abuse. Last year, Clark County School Police investigated Fitzgerald, but she was not charged, and it was discovered that there was an attempted cover-up by administrators and staff. The principal, Ryan Lewis, was subsequently transferred to another school. Greg Hubley, Bell's attorney, believes that this case highlights systemic issues within the Clark County School District, as no one has been held responsible or accountable for the abuse suffered by Bailey and other children in the classroom. Despite the allegations and investigations, Fitzgerald is currently still employed at Gerheim Elementary according to CCSD.
