FL - Teacher charged with having sex with student
More charges expected, BCSO says
LYNN HAVEN — A Deane Bozeman School history teacher William R. Crews was arrested and charged Thursday night in engaging in sexual activity with students while he was a teacher at the school.
Crews, 59, was charged with lewd or lascivious battery, lewd or lascivious molestation and lewd or lascivious exhibition stemming from relations with a male student from 2001 to 2003, according to Bay County Sheriff’s Office Major Tommy Ford.
In a post-Miranda interview, Crews admitted to having multiple sexual relationships with several different juveniles, most of which were students at the school he taught, according to the affidavit.
“The victim alleges that he was taken to a mini-storage warehouse where there was a television, VCR, pornography and sex toys,” Ford said. “We have two additional victims and leads on two more potential victims.”
The investigation began Wednesday, when a tip led the BCSO Criminal Investigations Division to contact several potential victims.
Investigators learned of an incident in which Crews was accused of making improper comments to a student conducting volunteer work; the incident had been investigated by school personnel but the case was “unfounded,” the affidavit states. In Crews’ personnel file with Bay District Schools, there is no mention of any investigation or improper conduct.

Bozeman community discusses abuse warning signs
SAND HILLS — Deane Bozeman School administrators invited a child abuse specialist and members of the school community to come together Tuesday night, in the wake of the arrest of a teacher on charges related to sexual contact with several students.
Deane Bozeman School parent Brian Kirke said he came to the community information meeting to learn how to help protect children from abuse and what resources are out there.
“There’s a wealth of resources and it’s a shame that something like this had to happen to make us aware of them,” said Kirke, who’s children are 12 and 14 years old.

I think it's good they are trying to educate the community about what the signs are and what to do about this problem. So many schools just try to move on and forget it....
