Former Shorewood High School teacher accused of inappropriately touching student and staff
SHOREWOOD (CBS 58) -- A former Shorewood High School teacher is now facing charges after a student and three district employees accused him of making unwanted sexual advances towards them.
Matthew Jones, 35, will be making his initial appearance Friday afternoon. He’s facing a disorderly conduct and lewd and lascivious behavior charges.
Last year, the Shorewood School District sent out a letter to parents that Jones was under investigation for charges of sexual assault of a student.
According to court documents, the student said she was inappropriately touched on two separate occasions.
During the investigation, three district employees came forward.
One victim said Jones touched her breasts and put his hand down her pants in the school parking lot after a work event.
Back in 2013, Jones and two other workers went out to celebrate a birthday at a restaurant. One of them said she didn’t remember leaving the restaurant and had somehow ended up in her apartment. In the criminal complaint, she saw Jones having sex with the other employee and said she was “not okay.”
According to one of the victims, Jones asked them to keep quiet out of fear of losing their jobs. Jones resigned from his position in March 2017.
In the letter to students, the district said it supported the student and cooperated with Shorewood Police.
“We will continue to provide support to the people affected,” said Bryan Davis, Shorewood School District Superintendent.
