Florida Teacher Arrested for Molesting Two Little Girls
John E. Morrison, a music teacher at Romeo Elementary School in Dunnelon, FL was arrested this morning on charges of molesting two of his students according to the Marion County Sheriff’s Office. The 62-year-old teacher was charged with one count of lewd and lascivious behavior and two counts of battery.
One of the girls, a 7-year-old, reported that Morrison had her sit on his lap and he moved his hand up her pant leg to the middle of her thigh. The other girl said that he held his hand on her butt and on another occasion put his hand down her shirt.
Morrison admitted to some of the inappropriate behavior but said that he never put his hand down the child’s shirt. Morrison has had all positive evaluations, since pedophiles don’t usually act out when they are being observed, and the Marion County School District has placed him on paid administrative leave pending the investigation. He bailed out of jail earlier today on $27,000 bond.
