GOSHEN, Ind. — A plea deal has been agreed to for a teacher in northern Indiana accused of hitting a student.

On Thursday a judge accepted a plea agreement submitted by lawyers for Michael Hosinski. The former Jimtown High School teacher is pleading guilty to a battery charge.

He was caught on school surveillance holding a 15-year-old boy against a hallway wall and slapping him in the face.

Sentencing will be July 14th when he’s expected to get a one-year suspended jail sentence. Hosinski, who is 62, was granted his retirement shortly after being fired because of the incident.

Hosinski is also expected to undergo anger evaluation as part of his agreement.
