Fairfield police investigate ‘concern’ about substitute teacher at middle school

Fairfield police are investigating a substitute teacher who worked at a Fairfield middle school on Wednesday after a student “reported a concern,” the district said.

The district’s statement released Wednesday said the student at Creekside Middle School reported the concern, and it was turned over to Fairfield police.

“It is inappropriate for the District to comment during this active police investigation,” the statement said.

The incident comes exactly a year after substitute teacher Tracey Abraham was arrested and charged with public indecency, a first-degree misdemeanor, after he admitted to “fondling himself” on the outside of his pants in a Creekside Middle School classroom on Jan. 8, 2019.

Abraham later pleaded guilty to public indecency and was sentenced to 180 days in jail, and the judge suspended all 180 days, ordering him to five years probation.
