A hearing in the criminal case against Katrina Dukes, the physical education teacher at Eugene Field accused of child abuse and child endangerment, is this morning in Mexico according to court records. Her preliminary hearing is now pushed to November 22.
Her attorney, David Moen, filed suit on September 13 against the Board of Education to restore her to her job. The civil case does not have any scheduled hearings, after the assigned judge recused himself last week.
Katrina Dukes was fired after being charged in connection with an April incident at Eugene Field Elementary. Dukes was a physical education teacher who was accused of hitting a student with a large bag of balls.
