A former Duval County Public School third grade teacher is behind bars for allegedly molesting one of his students.

Police arrested Douglas Bailey last week after a Duval County Public Schools investigation began in March and Bailey resigned in April.  

The former Thomas Jefferson Elementary school teacher is accused of molesting at least one of his third grade students.

Investigators interviewed 15 of the victim's classmates , as well as the victim, who admitted to being touched.

The report says several students said they saw Bailey grab the victim’s genitals as well saw him grab the victim’s arm and force him to do the same in return.
