AUSTINTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – The case of Lisa Schriner, accused of shoving a teenage student at Austintown Fitch High School, will be heard by an Austintown judge and not a jury.
The earliest a decision could be made would be Monday, when the judge returns to the office.
Lisa Schriner, 49, is on trial in Austintown court for an incident involving a 15-year-old student in April.
Witnesses said they saw Schriner yell at and shove the teenage boy against a brick wall as he was waiting to get on a bus. She was hired through the Mahoning County Educational Service Center as an aide and was placed at the high school, but she was not an Austintown schools employee.
Her attorney, Harry DiPietro, said Schriner was trying to protect the student.
