Middle school teacher charged with molesting student on campus

A Georgia middle school teacher has been arrested and charged with molesting a student at a Clayton County school.  >> Watch the news report here Investigators said the teacher, Darriel Bailey, worked at M.D. Roberts Middle School in Jonesboro. He's accused of inappropriate sexual conduct with a 13-year-old student, according to a warrant.  WSB-TV's Tom Jones spoke to parents, who were appalled. 'What kind of teacher would do that?' one parent said. 'When did he have the opportunity to do something like this at school?' Parents were also outraged that the school system didn't tell them about the arrest. Some parents told Jones that they received no information from the school about the arrest. 'It definitely should have been noted to every parent of a student that goes here,' Veeka Harris said.  >> Read more trending news  Warrants say Bailey exposed himself to the boy and asked him to go to the bathroom to perform indecent acts.  When the boy said no, the warrants say Bailey enticed the boy to participate on at least three occasions.  Clayton County schools said they can't comment on pending legal or personnel matters. At least one parent said she would use the incident as an opportunity to educate her sixth-grader.  'We talk about this at home for this reason,' Takisha Golden said. 'Those teachers are in a position of authority over children, and they need to know that stuff like this can happen.' Bailey faces charges of child molestation, sodomy, enticing a child for indecent purposes and sexual assault. He is being held without bond. 

Your guide to the Florida primary: Early voting, new polling places

Your guide to the Florida primary: Early voting, new polling places

Florida’s Primary Election is August 28, when voters registered with a political party get to choose among candidates to advance to the November 6 general election. Voters who are not party-affiliated will also cast ballots, but mostly are restricted to non-partisan races like judgeships and school boards.  In the case when one political party has candidates, but other does not, then unaffiliated voters will also have a chance to vote in that race in August, since the winner will not need to be on the November ballot. In Orange County, the race for mayor is also open to non-partisan voters. Click here to learn more about voting in Orange County. Seminole County voters are also choosing some local municipal races, in addition to the county, state and federal races in this mid-term election. Click here to learn more about voting in Seminole County. Voters in Kissimmee and St. Cloud are considering candidates to fill seats on their city council or commission. There are also several community development district elections, in addition to the major county, state and federal office races. Click here to learn more about voting in Osceola County.  There are three ways to vote in Florida: BY MAIL: Vote-by-mail refers to voting a ballot received by mail or picked up by, or for, a voter. The deadline to ask for a ballot to be mailed is 5:00 p.m. on Wednesday, August 22. A voter may pick up a vote-by-mail ballot from the office of their Supervisor of Elections through the day before the election or, if an emergency exists, on the day of the election. Vote-by-mail ballots must be received by the Supervisor of Elections’ office no later than 7:00 p.m. on Election Day in order to be canvassed and counted. EARLY: Early voting is defined as “casting a ballot in person prior to Election Day at a location designated by the Supervisor of Elections.” The voter uses the same type of voting equipment that is used at the polls on Election Day. All 67 Florida counties will be offering early voting from August 18 – August 25.  ON ELECTION DAY: Polls will be open statewide from 7:00 a.m. until 7:00 p.m. Any voters waiting in line at 7:00 p.m. will have the opportunity to cast a ballot. If you do not know where your polling place is, contact your county Supervisor of Elections as some polling places have moved since the 2016 election. Voters will be asked to provide a current and valid photo I.D. at the polls.  

12 weeks to Election Day as four more states hold primaries for Congress

With less than three months until the mid-term elections for the U.S. House and Senate, four more states hold primaries today for the Congress, but the roster of races is unlikely to produce the news associated with last week’s tight race in a special U.S. House election in Ohio, which amplified questions about whether the GOP can maintain control of Capitol Hill after November.

Primaries take place on Tuesday in four states: Connecticut, Minnesota, Vermont and Wisconsin.

No sitting incumbents in the Congress are on upset alert at this point – though there could always be some out-of-the-blue defeat that no one [More]
