JONESBOROUGH, Tenn. (AP) - A former special education teacher is facing two more assault charges stemming from separate incidents with students last year.

The Johnson City Press (https://bit.ly/1rFqaFD) reports 62-year-old Larry Manis of Blountville already faced one assault charge after he was accused of throwing a magazine rack at students.

Since he was indicted, two other assault charges have been filed by parents of children in Manis’ class last year.

Manis taught at Jonesborough Middle School, but has since retired.

The parents of all three children have filed civil lawsuits against the school system for a total claim of $900,000 over the alleged assaults.

Manis is free on a $1,000 bond on the original charge. No bond was set on the new charges because those were served as a summons.
