A St. Peter High School teacher facing counts of assault and malicious punishment of a child is scheduled to make his first appearance in court on the charges this week. Science Teacher Robert Shoemaker is accused of hitting a 17-year-old male student in the head with a backpack after the boy put his head down on his desk during class. Shoemaker has been teaching in St. Peter for 25 years, and numerous people have reportedly come out in support of him. He’ll be in court for the accusations on Tuesday.
