Paris, IL. (ECWd) –
Paris Union School District 95 removed all school duties from a “volunteer assistant coach” who was arrested for “online solicitation of minors” – according to a letter sent out to parents by the superintendent.
“Dear Parents and Community Members,
Paris Union School District No. 95 has learned of the arrest of a volunteer assistant coach for the online solicitation of minors. The volunteer coach was removed from all school duties once the district became aware of the allegation, and we have been working with local law enforcement and the Illinois Department of Children and Family Services since that time.
The professional expectations for our staff members are very clear, and this type of behavior will not be tolerated. The safety of our students is our top priority, and we will continue to work with state and local authorities as they assess this situation. Anyone with information related to the investigation is asked to contact the Paris Police Department.
If you have any questions, please email Dr. Jeremy Larson at [email protected] or you can call at 217 (465)-8448.
We will provide an update when more information becomes available.
