Charles Hamilton was sentenced Friday in Bexar County on the misdemeanor charge.
He was convicted of assaulting inmate James Salazar when he was a supervisor at a state jail in San Antonio and roughed up Salazar who had to have stitches on his lips.
Hamilton resigned from his position at A&M Consolidated Middle School as the criminal justice and careers teacher on March 23rd. He was arrested for the crime after he’d joined the school district where officials say he’d cleared a DPS background check.
Prosecutors had asked for jail time but he was given a $500 fine, one year probation, 160 hours community service and will have to take an anger management class.
