No charges are to be filed against a teacher in the Wayne-Westland School District

No charges against a local elementary teacher after claims that he sexually assaulted three students in a school bathroom. Tuesday, prosecutors denied a warrant request saying there's not enough evidence. But some parents disagree.

"We've done everything we know to do, I'll do anything I can do, but it's up to the parents to step forward," said grandparent Tina Dailey.

The grandmother of a seven-year-old Roosevelt McGrath Elementary School student says Tuesday that Wayne police and county prosecutors will not pursue criminal charges against a 47-year-old male art teacher, she and another parent say sexually abused at least two young boys in a bathroom after a field trip two weeks ago.

"I asked him did this happen to you more than once, 'yes, momma, it did,'" said Dailey.

The Wayne County Prosecutors office stating insufficient evidence as the reason not to move forward with criminal charges. Dailey and another parent, who has now hired an attorney, say they know their kids aren't lying.

"Please, please hear me. I go to bed at night with this little fella, he sleeps with me. I'm the one that he's hollering 'no' in the night. I'm the one who says go change your clothes, 'you gotta go with me, you gotta go with me momma because I'm afraid to go into my room,'" said Dailey.

Another parent tells Fox 2 he's absolutely disgusted with the outcome and the way the Wayne-Westland School District handled the allegations.

"Do I believe these affected other children? 100 percent," Dailey said.

The school sending out letters to parents after police began investigating. The teacher on a leave of absence, reportedly by choice. Dailey says she complained to the school back in February and nothing was done then.

Dailey said "This is all being hid. The school board has done nothing. They have let us down."

The superintendent tells Fox 2 Tuesday - "With this outcome, the district's administrative team will move forward in considering next steps and action as appropriate."

But for Dailey the question of sending her child back to that school if the teacher is there, isn't a question at all.

"There's no way I would let him stay in that school. I might as well let him walk in some dark alley with a bunch of sicko people. There's no way I could let him go back to school and he loves school and he's going to be punished for what this person did," said Dailey.
