Teacher arrested for second time in child sex crimes case

An elementary school teacher from Fresno, Calif., has been accused of having sexual contact with children, and it wasn’t his first run-in with the law.

Authorities recently arrested Robert William Duprey on child sexual assault and battery charges, ABC 30 reported.

“Their investigation of the Wolters Elementary School teacher led to a first arrest in June for allegedly lewd and lascivious acts with a child under 14,” the outlet said, adding that he had been released on bail that day.
But following that arrest, officials said two more victims emerged.

According to the Rape, Abuse, and Incest National Network (RAINN), one in nine girls and one in 53 boys under the age of 18 suffer sexual abuse or assault perpetrated by an adult.

“The effects of child sexual abuse can be long-lasting and affect the victim’s mental health,” the organization’s website states.

In June, a former Massachusetts gym teacher faced 32 charges for allegedly sexually assaulting ten girls who were students in his first, second and third grade classes, according to reports.

Daniel Hakim was charged with aggravated indecent assault and assault on a child under 14, and his bond was set at $200,000.

According to the ABC 30 report, with multiple accusers in the case, a judge may determine the suspect was dangerous and decide he shouldn’t be able to post bail this time around.

Duprey had worked full-time at Wolters since 2014, but a Fresno Unified spokesperson said he was placed on administrative leave in November.

Authorities have been investigating the suspect for a few years once the mother of an alleged victim spoke to the outlet, saying in a statement: ‘I am grateful for justice, but my heart breaks for the innocent children who have been through what they have been through. through.”

The district attorney’s office has reportedly not yet filed a complaint in the case.
