Teacher’s aide taped student to chair

A Columbia woman is accused of taping a Seven Oaks Elementary School 4K student to a classroom chair.

Olivia Michelle Murray, 25, is charged with cruelty to children, according to an arrest warrant.

“Based on our investigation, Murray, who works as teacher’s aide, used duct tape to tape the student’s legs to a chair Wednesday while the teacher was out of the classroom,” Lexington County Sheriff Jay Koon said. “Murray told detectives the student had been moved to the back of the classroom for being disruptive and not listening.”

Deputies arrested Murray Wednesday night at her home. She is being held in the Lexington County Detention Center.
