A former Scott County, Virginia special education teacher was indicted this week on abuse charges.

According to Commonwealth's Attorney Marcus McClung, 37-year-old Heather Lambert is charged with assault and battery of a mentally handicapped student. He says that is a misdemeanor.

McClung says the student was under Lambert's supervision when he says she abused the student on January 10 at the Scott County Career and Technical Center.
