Crawford County paraprofessional gets 40 years of probation for child molestation
News


A former Crawford County school employee, Carlteze James Saffold, pleaded guilty Wednesday to 13 counts of child molestation.

He received 40 years of probation.

He appeared in Crawford County Superior Court Wednesday afternoon on child molestation charges.

Saffold, a para-professional at Crawford County Middle School, was originally charged in October of 2013 with four counts of sexual exploitation of children, four counts of enticing a child for indecent purposes, and four counts of molestation.

Crawford County Sheriff Lewis Walker told 13WMAZ additional charges came from two more victims who have come forward since Saffold was first arrested.

When he was first arrested, Jamie Jones, an agent in the GBI's Perry office, said Saffold's charges involve four teenage students. He said Saffold apparently knew them through his position at the school, but they were investigating whether the case was connected to the school in any other way.

Saffold appeared before Superior Court Judge Phillip Brown on Friday morning for a bond hearing and no bond was set, according to a news release from the sheriff's office.

Crawford County Superintendent John Douglas said in October that the alleged crimes did not occur on school property.
