Read the Article and then ask yourself how he became a teacher...

A former Winter Haven police lieutenant who became an elementary school teacher in Auburndale has been arrested on charges of sexually molesting three students.

Arturo Trevino, 39, faces two counts of lewd molestation after the State Attorney's Office charged that he assaulted three girls between November 2006 and January of this year at Boswell Elementary School, where he taught fifth grade.

Polk County sheriff's deputies arrested Trevino without incident at his home Friday afternoon. He was expected to be booked into the jail by Friday evening.

Trevino is accused of assaulting one girl for two months by touching her and making inappropriate comments, according to a Sheriff's Office report.

Two additional girls also saidthey were fondled, deputies reported.

The Sheriff's Office investigated the complaint in January, then forwarded the allegations to the State Attorney's Office, said Chip Thullbery, a spokesman with the State Attorney's Office.

I think before people go writing stuff in the newspaper, they need to find out if it's true or not. I personaly know Mr. Trevino and I think all this is crap. If I were him, after all this crap is over, I would sue everyone of you that made a living off of writing this rediculous nonsense. I heard those girls have lied about this stuff before, from people that knew them. So, to ruin a hard working man's life because some immature little girls thought it would be funny to lie. To me you guys are no better then what your making him out to be because you are raping him of his hard working life and his family that do not deserve any of this. So, go look in the mirror and write something about yourself.
