A Northwest Independent School District assistant principal was arrested on Monday by the Fort Worth Police Department on charges of sexual abuse of a child.
Eaton High School principal Stacy Miles sent an email to parents that same night confirming that assistant principal Mose Brown had been arrested and charged with the “continuous sexual abuse of a child,” according to WFAA.
Miles stated in the email that Brown has been placed on administrative leave, and other steps have been taken to ensure the safety of students in the district.
“A charge of this nature results in an employee being immediately placed on administrative leave and not allowed on district property pending the outcome of an investigation,” the email stated, per WFAA.
While Miles confirmed the incident, she also told parents in the email that “the matter does not involve a current or former Northwest ISD student, and police are not seeking additional victims,” as reported by CBS News.
The Texas Education Agency has since confirmed that Brown was an employee at Fort Worth ISD from 2003 to 2016 and Keller ISD from 2016 to 2020.
Brown resigned from his role at Keller ISD in 2020 to accept a position at Northwest ISD, where he has worked since, according to WFAA.
A spokesperson from Keller ISD told WFAA that the allegations against Brown “do not involve any student in Keller ISD who was or has ever been under his administration supervision.”
Tarrant County jail records on Wednesday indicated that Brown had been released on a $50,000 bond.
The investigation is ongoing, and no further details of the case have been released.
Brown joins an increasingly long list of educators to be accused of sexual offenses.
Earlier this month, a Grand Prairie ISD middle school teacher was sentenced to 15 years in prison for an improper relationship and online solicitation with a minor, as previously reported by The Dallas Express.
Before that came accusations against a Sharyland ISD secretary, a longtime Arlington ISD substitute, a Henrietta ISD teacher’s aide, a Houston ISD middle school teacher, a Jacksboro ISD teacher’s aide, a former Vernon ISD coach, a Chapel Hill ISD dyslexia specialist, a former special education aide for Frisco, Richardson, Lovejoy, and Prosper ISDs, a former Frisco ISD school resource officer, a Killeen ISD special education teacher, an Arlington charter high school athletics director, a Lewisville ISD elementary school teacher, a Mesquite ISD teacher and coach, a Farmers Branch private school teacher, Itasca ISD’s superintendent, and a high school teacher and a middle school athletics director from Dallas ISD.
Sexual offense crimes in Dallas have remained high throughout 2023, as there have been 581 cases reported as of October 3, according to the Dallas crime analytics overview dashboard.
