Lawsuit: Teacher tried to sicken autisctic boy

INDIANAPOLIS, IN Anita Young's lawsuit says special education teacher Trinda Barocas told a classroom aide that they wouldn't have to deal with the boy misbehaving if he became sick.

Young says her son didn't eat the candy bar, probably because he doesn't eat unfamiliar foods.

Barocas has resigned from Mary Bryan Elementary School in Indianapolis. The school contacted Young in March after aides reported Barocas' behavior.

Barocas doesn't have a listed phone number. Her lawyer didn't return a call Friday. Barocas has told state officials that the allegations are false.
