Former Head Start exec faces charges

February 19, 2010

The Marion County Prosecutor's Office has filed criminal-confinement charges against 47-year-old Darrell Johnson, the former assistant director of Head Start. Investigators say that in November, Johnson used duct tape to restrain a 4-year-old for misbehaving in the Head Start office in IPS School 75. Head Start, a national school-readiness program, has since fired Johnson.
