RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) -

A former teacher's aide convicted of assaulting a Chesterfield child with autism will have to wait until January to appeal her case.

Jan Costley's court date was continued Wednesday until  January 30 at 1 p.m. 

Surveillance video showed Jan Costley yanking on the Matoaca Middle School girl's arms.

Back in June, she was forced to spend two months in jail. A judge also sentenced her to an anger management course and 50 hours of community service.

Costley was fired by Chesterfield Schools.
