Special ed teacher gets December child abuse trial
September 14, 2012, 05:00 AM Daily Journal Staff Report

Alexia Alika Bogdis

The Redwood City special education teacher accused of abusing two autistic 4-year-old boys in her care will stand trial in December on five counts of child cruelty and four counts of battery on school grounds.

Alexia Alika Bogdis, 44, of Millbrae, has pleaded not guilty to all charges.

 Bogdis, a five-year employee of the district, is accused of slapping a student, twisting a student’s wrist and kicking the back of a chair, causing a desk to move forward and strike a student. She is also accused of depriving a child of food and kicking a child in the stomach. No children were seriously injured. The two victims alleged in the criminal case were her students at Roosevelt Elementary School where she taught a group of 3- to 5-year-old developmentally challenged children. The day after Bogdis’ initial arraignment in March, the Redwood City Elementary School District said that an independent investigation showed six employees knew of the possible abuse but did not alert anybody as mandated by law.

After Bogdis’ arrest, she was placed on administrative leave from where she worked and has a court order barring her from campus, its employees and all students. She is also barred from having contact with minors.

She is free on a $15,000 bail bond.
