State Revokes License Of Mental Health Counselor Charged With Abusing Children

Franklin County Sheriff's Office

The Ohio Board of Education has permanently revoked the teaching license of a Columbus mental health worker accused of sex crimes. 

Matthew Gatton's five-year substitute early childhood teaching license was issued in 2014. Gatton has been charged with several counts for allegedly allowing students to sit in his lap, holding some close to him, allowed one to rest  on his lap, and having inappropriate conversations regarding genitalia.

Jim has been with WCBE since 1996. Before that he worked as a reporter at another Columbus radio station, and for three newspapers in Southwest Florida.
