Esraa Mohamed Soliman, 37, was charged with child abuse stemming from her alleged treatment of the 5-year-old autistic boy at Seminole Heights Elementary School. Witnesses saw him throw a shoe at Soliman when she attempted to discipline him. They said she retaliated by grinding the shoe in his face.
