At­tor­ney for tu­tor fac­ing child abuse charges says in­ci­dent was an ac­ci­dent

Baltimore Sun - - AROUND THE REGION -

The at­tor­ney for a tu­tor at City Springs Ele­men­tary School ac­cused of se­ri­ously in­jur­ing a 7-year-old child this week said Thurs­day the tu­tor re­cov­ered a gun replica or gun from the child and that the in­ci­dent was an ac­ci­dent. Ti­mothy Ran­dall Korr, the tu­tor, faces first- and sec­ond-de­gree child abuse, first- and sec­ond-de­gree as­sault, reck­less en­dan­ger­ment and ne­glect charges and was fired by the Bal­ti­more Cur­ricu­lum Project, the school’s char­ter op­er­a­tor. Po­lice said Korr slammed the boy against a wall on Mon­day, caus­ing a se­ri­ous head in­jury. The boy was be­ing treated at Johns Hop­kins Hos­pi­tal. The in­ci­dent was cap­tured on video. Kurt Nacht­man, Korr’s at­tor­ney, said Thurs­day that Korr was told by a few stu­dents that the boy had a gun, and felt what ap­peared to be one through the child’s cargo pants when he pat­ted him down. Korr be­gan walk­ing the boy to the of­fice, and the boy was hit­ting and scratch­ing Korr and was gen­er­ally not com­pli­ant, Nacht­man said. On the way to the of­fice, Korr lost his bal­ance, lead­ing to the boy’s in­jury, Nacht­man said. What ap­peared to be a replica gun was re­cov­ered from the boy af­ter Korr brought him to the school’s nurse for treat­ment, Nacht­man said. A gun or replica gun was not men­tioned in a po­lice re­port on the in­ci­dent. Nacht­man said the gun or replica gun was se­cured in the nurse’s of­fice, and that was the last Korr saw of it. He said he is seek­ing wit­nesses to the in­ci­dent, which he said hap­pened dur­ing the busy dis­missal time. Korr had a bail re­view hear­ing Thurs­day and was held in lieu of $250,000 bond; he had not posted it as of Thurs­day evening, ac­cord­ing to court records.
