Former school specialist facing sex abuse charges after allegedly assaulting 4 students at 3 different schools
In 2018, it is alleged that James Baird, who was working as a vision specialist, sexually assaulted a 10-year-old girl multiple times at Douglas 3-4 Campus which is a school in Garden City, while he was administering the tests. Two months later in that same year, he is also accused of blindfolding a 13-year-old girl and sexually assaulting her at Marshall Upper Elementary School. Fast forward to 2019, and Baird is once again accused of blindfolding and sexually assaulting another student, this time an 11-year-old, at Douglas Elementary School in Garden City. The same accusations of blindfolding and sexually assaulting a 15-year-old girl came to light in 2020. This time at Stevenson Middle School in Westland.
