NACOGDOCHES, TX (KTRE) -

A San Augustine woman who once accused a school principal of paddling her grandson too hard is facing her own charge of a form of child abuse.

A Nacogdoches County grand jury indicted Lynita Maurine Lamar, 43, on a charge of child abandonment in September of 2010. This indictment is coming after a 2009 claim by Lamar that her grandson was the victim of too much corporal punishment at school.

The adoptive parent of the boy, Lynita was charged in August of 2010 with "failure to provide appropriate supervision."  Devon Lamar was found "playing on a road where there was motor vehicle traffic," according to the indictment. 

Police arrested Lynita for putting the child in "imminent danger of death, bodily injury, or mental impairment" by not fully supervising the child.

Lamar came to KTRE in 2009 and showed photos of her son's bare rear end, with blue marks on it, accusing the San Augustine Elementary principal of paddling her son too hard.

Lamar was scheduled for a court hearing on Friday, but that was reset to Sept. 15.
