Judge accepts plea for Indiana teacher who hit teen

GOSHEN, Ind. (AP) – A judge on Thursday accepted a plea deal calling for a suspended sentence for a retired northern Indiana teacher accused of grabbing a 15-year-old student and punching him in the face.

Former Jamestown High School sociology teacher Michael Hosinski filed a guilty plea for a battery charge that caused moderate injury in Elkhart Superior Court. The agreement calls for a one-year suspended prison sentence and probation.

Hosinski, 62, of Osceola, will also undergo anger evaluation and will not be allowed to have contact with the victim.

Judge Teresa Cataldo set the sentence on July 14.

Hosinski, who was charged in March, confronted the student about a hoodie the teen was wearing. Security camera footage showed the two arguing in a hallway, with Hosinski hitting the student and hitting the student’s head against a wall. The teen suffered a scrape to the inside of his mouth and a lump at the back of his head, police said.

The Baugo Community Schools originally fired Hosinski, but the school board approved his retirement shortly after. He originally planned to retire at the end of the school year.
