FORESTBROOK, SC (WMBF) - A teacher and teacher's aide are facing serious charges after a student in their class recorded possible abuse.

That student was sent to school with a digital recording device attached to them somehow, the Horry County Police incident report states, and captured everything that happened inside the special education classroom at Forestbrook Elementary.

From the child's perspective, the audio recording seems to show the teacher's aide, 46-year-old Linda Joyce Warriner of Myrtle Beach, screaming at the child "that he was bad and had to go to the office," the report states.

But in this case the office was a 5' by 5' bathroom. While in that room, the child was asked to repeat what he had done to deserve that punishment, and how he wouldn't do it again.

The digital recording also captured the child screaming Warriner's name while asking that someone "stop pinching him...and not to hit him."

Although the recording contained only audio and does not implicitly capture this alleged abuse, Warriner and the teacher, 38-year-old Anna Rogers, can be heard saying how it's "a good thing that there are not cameras in the room yet."

The recording was given to the Horry County School District by the child's mother. District employees then contacted Horry County Police to determine if criminal charges were warranted.

Anna Rogers and Linda Warriner were booked into the J. Reuben Long Detention Center on Wednesday and charged with the unlawful neglect of a child. Both were released Wednesday afternoon with $10,000 bond each.
