Former Warren substitute teacher charged with assaulting student

Posted: Updated:

WARREN, Ohio - A former Warren City Schools substitute teacher accused of spanking a student multiple times this week appears in court to answer to an assault charge.

John Jerome, 63, was removed by the district's resource officer at the Williard K-8 school on Tuesday.

Warren police say the substitute spanked an 8-year-old boy more than once, claiming the boy was being disruptive in class.

An assault report filed by Warren Police lists two victims, an eight-year-old boy with apparent minor injuries, and a seven-year-old girl with unknown injuries.

Warren City Schools has banned Jerome from substituting in the district. Jerome has worked various substitute shifts in the district since 2010. 

The Trumbull County Education Service Center removed Jerome from the county's substitute teacher list pending the outcome of the investigation. The service center has notified other superintendents throughout the county that he will no longer be on that list.

Jerome is free on $10,000 bond. He's ordered to not have contact with any victims.
