Guam – Parents send their children to school with the faith that their child will be kept safe and unharmed. But there are individuals within the school system which may not have the best interest of the child in mind.

John Holi III is out of jail, released on a $1,000 personal recognizance bond, according to Amy Casten.

Holi III was seen by a fellow employee abusing a student at a Yigo elementary school. The incident was reported to school officials on April 29 and then reported to law enforcement.

Casten is the mother of the child Holi assaulted. Holi is accused of pulling the child’s hair and squeezing his shoulder, which made him cry “exuberantly..” He also allegedly threatened to hit the child to get him to listen.
