A teacher was sentenced to serve a jail term and undergo probation after being convicted of official oppression, according to a report from My San Antonio on Tuesday, August 20.

In the report, Judson Independent School District teacher Cynthia Ambrose was prevented from teaching for one year by the Texas Education Agency and made to serve a 30-day jail sentence after she was found guilty of instructing students to hit a bully in her class. According to the trial, Ambrose told other students to hit a 6-year-old boy.
