Tracey Abraham a Fairfield, Ohio substitute teacher is arrested after being observed masturbating in front of his middle school class.
Substitute teacher Tracey Abraham, 41, was arrested Tuesday morning at Creekside Middle School after the educator’s class noticed ‘suspicious behavior taking place behind his desk,’ around 10:30 a.m.
The alleged behavior was reported to administrators with the teacher immediately removed from school property.
Charges were filed against Abraham for public indecency. He was arraigned Tuesday in Fairfield Municipal Court.
School officials released a statement saying that Abraham will not be returning to the district. They also said they are not aware of Abraham having physical contact with any students.
‘In addition, we are not aware of any students being exposed to any nudity,’ the statement said.
Abraham’s father claimed the incident was a misunderstanding and said his son ‘never had an issue like this in his life.’
‘I don’t think what [the students] saw is what really was happening,’ Rick Abraham told the Cincinnati Enquirer. Or was it?
Abraham, who according to his Facebook page is a graduate of Sycamore High School and the University of Dayton, was not a Fairfield schools employee. The district gets its substitutes through the Butler County Educational Service Center cincinnati.com reported.
Abraham’s next court appearance is set for Jan. 15. He has been ordered to stay away from all locations where children under 18 are present.
The incident will be reported to the Ohio Department of Education.
