Pauls Valley teacher arrested on abuse charges
PAULS VALLEY, Okla. -- Rocky Walker, a junior high teacher, was arrested this past week for two separate incidents of alleged abuse.
A student, 15, said Walker hit him repeatedly throughout the school year. The student alleges Walker also hit him last week, and sent him to the hospital when the student was painting Walker's home.
A 16-year-old student said Walker gave him the option of taking a school-incident related punishment right away or waiting for a week.
The student chose immediate punishment, and alleges Walker hit him across the back as hard as he could several times.
The student told police Walker apologized for the incident, then prayed with the student.
