Teacher Pleads Guilty To Using Stun Gun On Student

`A middle school employee on Tuesday pleaded guilty to charges that he used a stun gun on a student.

Shaun Ellis, 25, faces probation to six months in prison after pleading guilty to second-degree assault, prosecutor Kerri Lombardi said.

Ellis, who worked in an after-school program at Horace Mann Middle School, called a boy out class Jan. 11 and took him to the school’s empty auditorium.

The boy said Ellis told him he was in trouble for tripping a girl the night before at an after-school basketball game, shocked him three times and punched him in the stomach, Lombardi said.

The boy described the shocks as “like 1,000 bee stings,” she said.’
