ADAMS TOWNSHIP — The Clinton County Sheriff Office’s detective section is following up on a report that “juvenile male students” at Clinton-Massie High School had received sexually explicit messages from an adult male associated with the school district.
On Wednesday, Clinton-Massie Superintendent Matt Baker said the suspect is neither a certified nor a classified employee with the district, but rather had held a limited supplemental contract. A supplemental position with schools often involves duties linked to extra-curricular or co-curricular activity.
The suspect has been told not to return to the school due to concerns brought to the attention of the Clinton-Massie administration, said Baker. The suspect’s supplemental employment already was over, Baker added.
Baker described supplemental school jobs as stipend positions that have a start and an end date.
It was a parent in the Clinton-Massie school district who contacted the school’s resource officer, Clinton County Deputy Sheriff Danny Wood, with the complaint.
“We appreciate parents working with our administration to make us aware of any concerns that could affect students academically or emotionally,” the superintendent said.
The offense alleged on the sheriff’s office incident report is listed as “importuning.”
The suspect is suspected of using alcohol, according to the incident report.
The incident report states there are two victims.
