Teacher’s Aide Accused Of Touching Girl

August 26th, 2009 by

DELTONA, Fla. — Guy Carlisle, 62, is a teacher’s aide from Pride Elementary School in Deltona.

He’s accused of inappropriately touching a 10-year-old under her shirt — a felony charge.

The allegation against Carlisle first surfaced in April, when Carlisle, the alleged victim and another student were behind closed doors for a reading lesson. The girl said Carlisle rubbed her back and shoulders and touched her underneath the front of her shirt.

Carlisle has been a special education teacher or teacher’s aide in Volusia County since 2002 and had been teaching at Pride for six months. He has been the subject of three professional investigations, including this one. He was a teacher at Silver Sands Middle school up until 2005 when he was demoted to a teachers aide inappropriate conduct. The district said he threatened harm to a student who had soiled himself. Then in 2008 at Silver Sands, a 13-year-old autistic student claimed Carlisle touched her inappropriately. That claim was found to be unsubstantiated and Carlisle was reinstated as an aid.

Carlisle’s neighbors insist there must have been a misunderstanding, saying that touching a girl would be out of character for him, but investigators said they saw enough evidence to file a lewd and lascivious charge.

“She said she felt very uncomfortable. She tried to move away to get his hand out of her shirt. She was scared she didn’t know what to do,” Gary Davidson of the Volusia County Sheriff’s Department said.

Carlisle was booked into the Volusia County Branch Jail Tuesday morning, but has been freed after posting bond.
