Update: Search Warrant Served to Monroe City School Board


A search warrant has now been served on the Monroe City School Board related to the allegations accusing a former teacher at Neville high school of providing drugs to students in an exchange for sex.

Christian Amos, 25, of Monroe, was arrested on March 1st for 6 counts of prohibited sexual conduct between an educator and six counts of drug possession with intent to distribute to a schedule I drug.

A warrant was issued for the Monroe City School Board on March 16th after allegations that the school board knew about the actions and attempted a cover up.  The warrant requested personnel records from Amos and any proof that the issue was settled by the school system without getting police involved. School systems are mandatory reporters in cases involving alleged sexual contact between teachers and students.

According to the warrant request, a parent filed a complaint on Jan. 12 that said she, the victims, and Amos had provided written statements to the school district about the allegations. The personnel coordinator at the school board, David Breithaupt, confirmed that Amos had resigned and that he had committed numerous policy violations and was instructed by his superiors to not provide any details that were not requested by the investigator.

During his interview, Amos reportedly admitted to some of the allegations, and kept saying the police were never supposed to be called. He reportedly told investigators Breithaupt met with him after three students accused him of giving them illegal substances in exchange for sexual favors to suspend him and place him on paid leave.  

On Jan. 25, Amos reportedly was called in an interview at the school board office with Vidrine, Breithaupt and Phedra Brantley, where according to Amos, Vidrine told him that the parents had been handled and no police would be called.
