Teacher charged with child molestation waives first court appearance

A Fulton County teacher waived his first court appearance on Tuesday. 

Roswell Police have charged 32-year-old Preston Paris with child molestation and statutory rape. Officers arrested him Monday morning at Chattahoochee High School.

According to Roswell Police Public Information Officer Lisa Holland, Roswell Police were contacted last week by Cobb County Police in reference to an investigation involving a juvenile victim.

Holland said the investigation revealed the alleged crimes against the 13-year-old took place inside the Roswell city limits at an apartment complex after the two reportedly met online.

Holland added the 13-year-old is not a student at Chattahoochee, and investigators have no information of any crimes against Chattahoochee students.

Fulton County Schools Chief Communications Officer Cierra Chuly Boyd said Paris is no longer an employee with the school district.
