    Teacher Arrested, Dillingham Parent Speaks Out

    Heather Soliz's 11-year-old daughter is in [Leigh Mahaffey's] homeroom. She says her daughter started attending Dillingham last December. But Soliz became concerned after her daughter started coming home and telling her the comments Mahaffey was making. "How their clothes fit, how good they look in jeans, or that they look cute and how pretty they are and their hair looks good this way," she said.

    So she decided to contact the school about removing her daughter from his class but it didn't go as she hoped. "The school did nothing about it, the school wouldn't allow us to change her schedule, remove her from the class or anything," Soliz said. For two months Soliz tried to talk with school officials about Mahaffey's comments, but nothing changed. "I know the comments aren't technically illegal, but if it's to the point where it's making children uncomfortable, boys and girls, by the comments he's making to the little girls, it needs to be addressed," she said.

    Mahaffey was arrested March 13 and charged with sexual assault of a 15-year-old girl.
