GATE CITY, Va. — A former Scott County Schools special education teacher was indicted by a grand jury Monday for allegedly abusing a mentally handicapped student who was under her supervision.

Heather Lambert, 37, of Mount Carmel, Tenn., was indicted on a single count of assault and battery of a mentally handicapped student, which is a misdemeanor.

Lambert's charge stems from an incident that allegedly occurred on Jan. 10 at the Scott County Career and Technical Center, which houses several special needs classes.
