A 52-year-old Muldrow Public Schools home economics teacher will stand trial on a charge of enabling child abuse by injury, according to the ruling of her preliminary hearing Jan. 12 in Sequoyah County District Court, Sallisaw.
Julie Boshers entered a not-guilty plea to the charge on Oct. 12. According to court records, she will next go to court on April 13 when a judge will determine if both sides are ready to go to trial.
Boshers was charged on Oct. 6 and is free on a $2,500 bond.
According to the charges filed Oct. 6, Boshers was on duty as a safety monitor at the school during the lunch break, when her son, identified as B.B. in court records, told his mother, Boshers, that he was going to beat up another student, identified in court records as G.B.
B.B. and Boshers then, the Muldrow police officer’s report continues, went to the gazebo where G.B. was standing and a fight began that lasted about two minutes.
The report continues, “During the fight BB picked GB up off the ground, slamming him to the concrete flooring on his head and neck area then punching him in the back of the skull and spinal area.”
The report alleges Julie Boshers did nothing to stop the fight, and can be seen in a video standing, with her arms at her side, observing but making no attempt verbally or physically to prevent or stop the fight. Witnesses said another student stepped in and stopped the fight.
The state is represented in the case by Assistant District Attorney Stacey Slaughter. Boshers is represented by attorneys Kate C. Thompson and Joe White Jr. of Oklahoma City.
