Gordon County, GA – Two ex-employees of the City of Calhoun School District in Georgia face serious allegations of sexual misconduct with students. Railey Greeson and Brooklyn Shuler were indicted on Thursday in Gordon County on charges of sexual contact by employee or agent in the first degree.

Allegations of Sexual Misconduct Against Two GA Teachers

The indictment claims that between October 29, 2021, and January 3, 2022, Greeson engaged in sexual activities with two male students, while Shuler allegedly had sexual contact with one male student. The exact ages of the students involved have not been disclosed.

Sex With Students Prohibited in GA

According to the indictment, both women “reasonably should have known” that the individuals they had sexual contact with were enrolled students. This violates Georgia Code 16-6-5.1(b), which prohibits sexual contact between school employees and students.

Accused Teachers Employment History

While the specific schools where Greeson and Shuler worked are not mentioned in the indictment, records show their employment history with the district:

  • Greeson worked in the after-school program, earning about $2,800 in fiscal year 2021 and $1,500 in fiscal year 2022.
  • Shuler served as a substitute teacher, making $3,800 in fiscal year 2021 and $300 in fiscal year 2022.

Ongoing Investigation

The case remains under investigation, with the Georgia Bureau of Investigation involved. Both women were arrested and subsequently released on bond from Gordon County Jail.

This developing story raises questions about student safety and employee conduct in educational settings. As legal proceedings continue, the school district and local community grapple with the implications of these serious allegations.

Legal Rights for Victims of Teacher Sexual Abuse

In the aftermath of the recent indictments of two former Georgia school employees for sexual misconduct with students, understanding the legal rights of victims and their families becomes paramount. To learn more, we spoke with John Bey, a seasoned Georgia school sexual abuse lawyer, to discuss the legal options available and how negligent schools can be held accountable.

Laurence Banville, Esq.: Mr. Bey, what legal options are available for victims of teacher sexual abuse and their families?

John Bey, Esq.: Victims and their families have several legal avenues to consider. They can file civil lawsuits against the perpetrators and potentially the school district for negligence. These suits can seek compensation for emotional trauma, therapy costs, and other damages resulting from the abuse.

Banville: How can schools be held accountable in these situations?

Bey: Schools can be held liable if they failed to properly screen employees, ignored warning signs, or didn’t follow mandatory reporting laws. Accountability often comes through civil litigation, which can lead to financial penalties and court-ordered reforms in school policies and procedures.

Banville: What steps should families take if they suspect abuse?

Bey: Families should immediately report suspicions to law enforcement and child protective services. They should also document any evidence and seek medical and psychological care for the victim. Consulting with an experienced attorney early on can help protect the victim’s rights and navigate the complex legal process.

Banville: Thank you for sharing, Mr. Bey. This information is valuable for families facing such difficult situations.
