A 51-year-old teacher and an institute worker in Florida, in the United States, has been accused of throwing disinfectant on her students for misusing the mask to prevent the coronavirus.

According to the version that the teacher gave to the police who came to the center, the young people wore the mask incorrectly and when he asked them to put it on correctly, they refused. That’s why the teacher threw him out disinfectant on the face and body.
Although the teacher denies the accusations, the incident was recorded by security cameras. The videos will be used as evidence against the high school teacher, who is also sand he is charged with cases of child abuse.
The teacher, Reszetar, was jailed and had to appear before a judge, at which point she denied the accusations against her and even said that the tests are false. The judge in the case advised him to hire a lawyer to defend himself. To which the teacher replied that she could not pay with her salary.
Prosecutors asked to increase the bail of the woman, as they did not have the means to cover the trial. However, the judge released her without bail.
