(WTOL-TV) The Riverdale Schools teacher caught on camera confronting kindergartner Ian Nelson has hired a lawyer to fight what could be brought against her.

It is video we brought you Tuesday May 13 that people are talking about in northwest Ohio and all over the country. A surveillance camera caught kindergarten teacher Barb Williams confronting six-year-old Ian. She put him up against the wall and grabbed him not only by the face but also by the shirt.

A sheriff’s deputy said he visited Ian’s father at their home in Wharton Wednesday May 14 and has opened an investigation that could lead to possible criminal charges. This video will be a big part of that probe. If the sheriff’s office believes charges are warranted, it will forward the case to the prosecuting attorney, Mark Miller.
