HIV positive Coach aide arrested for Child porn and molesting boys

 

 

 

 

 

A former school aide and track coach has been accused of molesting several male students, according to the Charles County (Md.) Sheriff’s Office.

Officials said Carlos Bell told them he was HIV positive and evidence was recovered to corroborate his statement.

Bell, 30, was arrested Friday on three charges of producing child pornography and two counts of assault. More charges are expected in the ongoing investigation, officials said.

According to investigators, Bell sexually abused at least seven males on school property, his home and possibly at other locations.

Investigators are asking anyone whose child may have had contact with Bell to talk with their children about this matter. With the assistance of the FBI, a phone line has been established for anyone with concerns about their children relating to this case. That phone number is 1-800-CALL-FBI.

According to the sheriff’s office, an investigation began in December after a high school student’s parent raised concerns about “electronic messages” from Bell to her child.

Bell, who was an instructional assistant at Benjamin Stoddert Middle School and also the head indoor track coach at La Plata High School, was immediately removed from the school and barred from coaching.

Charles County Public Schools said Bell hasn’t worked in any school building since Dec. 22, 2016.

“Student safety is job one, and clearly we have work to do to determine where we fell short in this instance, and how we can ensure that this will never happen again,” said CCPS superintendent Kimberly Hill in an emailed statement. “Our immediate attention will be focused on providing support to any students that may have been affected by Mr. Bell’s actions.”

“We have not charged everything we could at this point,” Covington said. “The sheriff’s office is still in the process of trying to identify all of the youngsters involved and to interview them.”

Diane Richardson, the spokeswoman for the Charles County Sheriff’s Department, said four of the boys have been found and two have tested negative for HIV. Two others have not yet been tested. She said police are working to find and notify the other three.

Authorities would not say how many videos or images were seized.

“In an organization that is all about children, these allegations are horrifying,” said Charles County Schools Superintendent Kimberly A. Hill. “To our parents and our community who put their trust in us to safeguard their children, I apologize. School safety is No. 1 and clearly we have work to do to ensure that this will never happen again.”

Bell lives in a small bungalow-style house on Jonathan Court, less than one mile from the middle school, separated by a shopping center and St. Charles Parkway. Charles County is about 35 miles south of Washington, across the Potomac River from Dale City, Va. A relative of Bell’s reached Monday declined to comment.

Bell appeared Monday for a hearing in Charles County Circuit Court and was ordered held without bail. His attorney was not listed in online court records.

The school system said Bell was a temporary instructional assistant at J.P. Ryon Elementary from September 2014 to March 2015 and worked as an instructional assistant at Benjamin Stoddert from March 2015 until Dec. 22, 2016. Bell was the indoor track coach at Maurice J. McDonough High during the 2015-2016 school year and coached the indoor track team at La Plata High from November 2016 to December 2016.

Hill, the schools superintendent, said the system did two background checks on Bell when he was hired in 2014, which included running his name and fingerprints through a database of criminal records. She said, “Bell’s screening came up twice with a clean record.”

Police said the investigation began in December when a parent of a track team member at La Plata High noticed a text message from Bell on her son’s phone that was “sexual in nature.”

The mother called the sheriff’s office and Richardson said police notified the middle school, where Bell worked at the time. She said the school system “immediately put him on administrative leave” and barred him from campus.

Covington said it does not appear that the student “fell prey to sexual assault himself.”

Manipulating children seems to be the main agenda to these creeps that molest kids. Because I do not understand how they get them to be silent. Yes I have to ask myself what it would have taken for me to be silent as a kid, and fear is the number one factor.

It’s bad enough that he assaulted these boys. But he’s infected with HIV. Many times it takes the courage of one before the others will see that it’s ok to speak up.

But it’s almost a slap in the face to parents when we warn our children and give them the necessary tools to protect them, but they don’t listen. Have You ever taken it personally when your kid doesn’t listen? It’s like the predator wins again because he or she clearly has something that we parents don’t.

Does it depend on the mindset of the child? Do we need to drill it in their heads more? What aren’t we telling our kids? What aren’t we saying?

Should we be telling our children not to trust anyone?
