DENVER — The mother of a 6-year-old whose mouth was taped shut by a school secretary is suing the school system.

An elementary school secretary, Jennifer Carter, pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor child abuse charge after the October incident. Carter taped the unruly child’s hands and mouth with masking tape.

The mother of the student filed a legal notice to Denver Public Schools that she intends to sue for $500,000.

Carter was sentenced last month to probation and has been fired.
