School employee arrested for sexual battery in Shreveport
SHREVEPORT, LA (NBC33) — Shreveport Police have arrested a Caddo Parish School Board employee on alleged sexual battery charges.
Officers responded to Fair Park High School following reports that a school employee had inappropriately touched a female student while on campus Friday morning.
Investigators gathered information about a male paraprofessional worker assigned to the high school. The employee allegedly fondled and groped a 17-year-old student at various times the previous school day. Other evidence suggests that the abuse happened over a period of several weeks.
Detectives linked 60-year-old Bobby Jelks to the crime and detained him on campus.
Police later arrested Jelks and took him to Shreveport City Jail, where he was booked on one count of sexual battery.
The investigation is still ongoing.
