Judge delays trial for substitute teacher

From page A3 | January 10, 2014 |

FAIRFIELD — A substitute teacher who faces criminal charges for allegedly abusing four second-graders in his David A. Weir Elementary School classroom had his upcoming jury trial postponed Thursday.

The teacher, Joe H. Yow, 52, of Suisun City, was set to stand trial next week. Judge Alesia Jones postponed the start of the trial to April 14.

Yow previously pleaded not guilty to four misdemeanor child abuse charges. Yow allegedly grabbed the children by their necks and throats on Oct. 18, 2012, as a method of escorting them to class. The children, all 7, told their parents about Yow’s alleged actions and the parents in turn told police, who arrested Yow at his home the next day.

None of the children were injured.

Yow has posted $3,000 bail to stay out of jail pending resolution of his case.

    Wow this is tough. I don't know this man or the children involved but something doesn't sit right in my mind here. I cringe at the fact that I am second guessing the word of the children involved.....but how does a grown adult grab four 7 year olds by the neck and throat and leave no injuries? Not a single bruise? I sure would hope that a proper investigation is done here and all stones are turned over. Its not unheard of that a few disgruntled parents could get together and fabricate a story like this to get someone fired or worse. On the other hand if this man did abuse these children I hope the D.A. shows no mercy. This could be a tough one. A bad situation for the children involved either way.

    Never discredit a child until you have proof otherwise. My father used to pick me up by my neck and ears without leaving physical marks and it was terrifying and painful. Adults abusing their power against children is nothing new. I trust they will get to the bottom of it soon and thank goodness it wasn't any worse then it was. If you put your hand on my child you would need alot more then a good lawyer.

    I question when anyone says "don't touch my child, father, mother, me" and then threatens to do harm or makes a veiled threat to another person. Violence is either wrong or right. I do not trust proclaiming to not want violence done to them and theirs, but then makes a threat against someone else. I believe we will learn more about this once the trial begins. Until then, I, like 'just a thought', am uncertain what truly happened.
