What led to Alana Chasky a Florida special teacher’s aide sexually preying on a teen special needs student? Had been previously warned by victim’s mother.
Alana Chasky a 35 year old Florida special teacher’s aide has been arrested after allegedly maintaining a relationship with a 14 year old student with behavioral issues.
The private school teacher came under the radar after allegations of inappropriate sexual relations with the teen student at Riverdale Country Day School surfaced last month.
At the time Chasky worked as a school bus aide at the school dedicated to students with emotional and behavioral disorders.
‘She was a student’s aide and she met this particular victim on the bus,’ Palm Bay Police Lt. Mike Bandis told FOX35 Orlando. ‘She rode the bus back and forth…and that’s where they met.’
Alana Chasky sexual messages on her teen victim’s cellphone:
A report via Florida Today told of the boy’s mother showing police sexual messages between Chasky and her son on the boy’s phone after the boy was arrested in connection with a burglary at the teacher’s aide’s house.
The inappropriate text messages included video of the two in Chasky’s bed and a photo of them together in their underwear, according to The Brevard Times. Police were able to match the number on the sexts to Chasky’s cell phone.
Cops said no inappropriate contact happened at the school, according to police, with Chasky resigning from the Palm Bay school during the investigation.
‘We are cooperating with the authorities in their investigation of this alleged event and will continue to do so until its completion,’ said Riverdale Country School CEO Michele Maust in a statement to Click Orlando. ‘The accused has not been an employee at the site since June 30. She voluntarily resigned during the Summer. Riverdale Country School remains committed to its mission of meeting the individual educational, therapeutic and behavioral needs of the children and adolescents it serves.’
But it wasn’t the first time after Alana Chasky defied the teen boy’s mother warnings:
Police had similarly investigated the aide over the summer, after the boy’s mother noticed Chasky dropping her son off at school, but police dropped the inquiry at the time after not finding enough evidence to press charges.
Chasky was charged with lewd and lascivious battery on a victim between 12 and 16 years old and distributing obscene material to a minor.
To date authorities have not said what led to Chasky abusing her position of authority, trust and power to usurp the teen male boy….
Chasky remains in custody at the Brevard County Detention Center pending a $65,000 bond.
