Broward Teacher Arrested For Forcing Child To Clean Dirty Urinal

CORAL SPRINGS (CBSMiami) - A Broward County charter school teacher is facing battery charges after she allegedly forced a 10-year-old student to clean a dirty urinal that she thought the student clogged, according to the Coral Springs Police Department.

Jennifer Forshey, who teaches third grade at Broward Community Charter School West, according to the school's website, is accused of battery on a child by exposing the child to urine.

According to the arrest report, Forshey accused a 10-year-old boy of clogging the drain in a urinal in the boys bathroom on day last week. Police say she ordered the boy to use his hands to remove the paper towels filled with urine from unknown students.

"Victims hands were saturated in what smelled like urine from the urinal and the paper towel that was in the urinal," the police report reads.

The student told police Forshey did not provide him with any safety equipment to clean the urinals. The student also said there was no soap in the bathroom to clean his hands.

Investigators interviewed Forshey and she admitted to the allegations and showed no remorse, according to the police report. "She only thinks what she did was wrong because she is in trouble for it. Otherwise, she does not see anything wrong with exposing a child to urine," the report reads.

CBS 4 News called the owners of the school, the Leona Group. They told us they cannot comment.
