MONROE, Mich. (WXYZ) – Criminal charges are pending against three former school employees who were fired last November from the Monroe High School District.

This comes amid allegations of misconduct by students with special needs.

“My child does not speak or has a voice. So, someone has to answer for this. No child should have to go through this. No parents, no family,” said father Precious Gonzales.

Her 11-year-old son, Jay Jay, is the alleged victim.

“It hurts. My son does not talk. It’s something no one should have to go through,” Gonzalez said.

The mother spoke to 7 Action News last year after the teacher and two other workers were fired. He says his son is also an eleven-year-old boy both were driven into the closet.

“I would like to be in prison. They need to be held accountable for putting my son there without thinking. That’s what makes it even more heartwarming. This is a school for our children. I was always afraid of that happening in a regular school, and that’s why he stayed where he is now,” Gonzalez said.

We have confirmed that prosecutors have charged three former employees with dereliction of duty and dereliction of duty, which carries a maximum penalty of three months in prison and hundreds of fines.

We tried to reach them for comment, but our messages were not returned.

“This is something we have to live with forever now. This is something we are going to carry forever,” Gonzalez said.

The school district also declined to comment after initially saying they had taken immediate steps to ensure the safety of students and staff.

“Our children act out in behavior because they cannot speak or express themselves. Who knows exactly what damage has been done because he can’t tell me what he feels. If he’s afraid to go back to school or if he’s afraid of this person,” Gonzalez said.

All three former school employees will be arraigned on February 27 at 9 a.m. We’ll be there to update you on the latest developments.
