Second New London School Employee Charged With Sexual Assault

Another New London Public Schools employee has been arrested and charged with sexual assault. 

Police said they arrested 25-year-old Jevon Elmore, of New London, in association with an ongoing investigation involving New London Public School employees. Police said Elmore was hired in the summer of 2018 as a paraprofessional. 

He was charged with sexual assault in the second degree. 

Bond was set at $150,000 and he is due in court on Friday. 

Anyone with information is asked to call the New London Police Department’s Detective Bureau at 860-447-1481 or submit anonymous information through the New London Tips 411 system by texting NLPDTip plus the information to Tip411 (847411). 

The is the second arrest of a New London school employee on sexual assault charges this month. 

Corriche Gaskin, 35, who worked at Bennie Dover Jackson Middle School as a behavioral specialist, was previously arrested and charged with multiple counts of risk of injury to a child, illegal possession of child pornography, second degree sexual assault and voyeurism with malice.

Online court records say Gaskin is being held on $500,000 bond and he is due in court next on June 5.

In a statement, New London Public Schools Superintendent Cynthia Richie called the situation "extremely disturbing" and said they are continuing to work police and DCF on the case.

"We will continue to actively support students, staff and families through our multi-tiered support systems. Any staff who is not displaying the highest moral, ethical and professional standards will continue to be held accountable through discipline and termination," she wrote.

School district officials previously said four employees from New London Schools were placed on paid administrative leave related to the investigation into Gaskin.

Parent Krystal Biltcliffe said she took her sixth grader out of Bennie Dover Jackson Middle School after a gun scare there earlier this month. Now to hear about the arrest of yet another school employee, she's upset.

“It’s sad. To be honest with you, a school is supposed to be safe. How can you let your kids go to a school that’s like this?”

Police said they would make more information available Friday.
