LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — A former teacher at Las Vegas Academy is due in court this morning.

Clark County School District police say that John Morris, 56, had contact with the student during the 2016-2017 school year but the alleged misconduct was not reported until January 2018. Morris was arrested 8 months later.

Parents that 13 Action News spoke with say they are frustrated with the timeline.

Therapist and mom Stefanie Hui says that parents need to make sure that their teens feel comfortable enough to tell them if something inappropriate is happening. She also says parents must be vigilant.

Morris joined CCSD in 1990. He retired from CCSD after the allegation was made.
