A woman has been sentenced to prison for the attack on a Donalsonville, Georgia teacher. Neotha Fedd, 50, was sentenced Monday to 20 years in prison followed by 15 years probation on a series of charges in connection with the beating.

The May, 2013 attack on Dr. Louise Royal left the teacher with multiple injuries, including brain damage, and unable to continue her career.

Seminole County District Attorney Joe Mulholland terms the beating the worst of its kind he’s seen. “Dr. Royal was serving as a hall monitor making sure everyone was where they were supposed to be,” said Mulholland. “All (Royal) did is ask Fedd to go to the office and get a visitor’s pass.”

Mulholland said, and a videotape confirms, Fedd snapped. She beat and kicked Dr. Royal before striking the veteran educator several times with a broom. Officers showed up a short time later and Fedd was arrested. She was convicted on charges including aggravated assault, aggravated battery, and terror threats.

“It makes me feel really good that (Fedd) will not be out on the streets and at school again,” Royal said shortly after the sentencing. While given only small odds Royal still hopes to return to the classroom.

Mulholland said an investigation shows Fedd was upset about the way Royal treated one of Fedd’s children whom she taught. “The defendant had some mental issues and after years of (hostilities) building up she decided to take it out on Dr. Royal, “he said.
