Contract employee charged with assaulting student at school

November 9, 2017

LEXINGTON, S.C. – A Lexington man who works for a company contracted by Gray Collegiate Academy to help students prepare for the SAT has been arrested after investigators said he struck a student.


Homer Jonathan Reed Wilson, 50, is charged with third degree assault and battery for hitting a student on the head, according to an arrest warrant.


“Detectives interviewed one witness who saw the incident in the school gym last month,” Lexington County Sheriff Jay Koon said. “They talked with another person who heard a ‘slap sound’ as the incident occurred.”


Wilson turned himself in Tuesday morning and was released from the Lexington County Detention Center later in the day after a judge set bond at $1,087.50.


The investigation into the incident is ongoing, according to Koon.


Third degree assault and battery is a misdemeanor punishable by a fine of up to $500 or up to 30 days in jail.
