La. Teen Who Beat Disabled Teacher Charged with More Severe Felonies

October 21, 2021

On October 19, 2021, WVUE reports that Larrianna Jackson, the 18-year-old Louisiana high school student who on October 06, 2021, beat a disabled high school teacher as other students filmed the event and posted it “for notoriety and publicity,” has been charged with more serious felonies than initially reported.

Jackson was initially charged with the felony, “battery of a school teacher,” which has a maximum sentence of six months in jail. However, upon reconsideration, on October 15, 2021, the district attorney’s office charged Jackson with felony second-degree battery and cruelty to the infirmed. The penalty for second-degree battery includes a possible fine of up to $2,000, and/or 8 years in prison with or without hard labor. Penalty for cruelty to the infirmed holds a higher possible fine ($10,000) and more prison time (10 years), or both. Though WVUE reports that Jackson faces up to 10 years in prison, it seems that the two charges could garner up to 18 years if conviction of both felonies does not include concurrent sentences.

Jackson is scheduled to be arraigned on December 8, 2021, in Louisiana’s 22nd Judicial District Court.

The other two students involved were charged with unlawful posting of criminal activity for notoriety and publicity, a misdemeanor that carries up to a $500 fine and/or six months in prison.
