CANUTILLO - A former teacher who assaulted a 9 year-old Canutillo Elementary student last October pleaded guilty to assault.
Jose Gregory Juarez, 50, was charged with a third degree felony and given 18 months of deferred adjudication, 80 hours of community service and a $100 fine.
Juarez dragged a student in his classroom by the leg and then pulled her by her ponytails to pick her up off of the floor.
After the incident, Juarez was put on administrative leave by CISD and resigned later that year.
