A teacher was still hospitalized at last word after being struck by a juvenile inmate at the Lincoln Hills boys' institution at Irma in Lincoln County.
Media reports say the female teacher was struck in the face, but state Corrections' spokesman Tristan Cook would only say that the employee was injured and sent to a hospital. Lincoln County sheriff's deputies are investigating. A friend and former coworker of the instructor told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel the woman could have been killed, and she's "torn up" emotionally. And the state's largest news outlet said the inmate was involved in another attack recently in which a staffer had a tooth knocked out.
