    Fox 5 Vegas: Police: Teacher talked porn, sex acts with underage students (Sept 26 2013)

    In the arrest report, detectives said they were contacted in July by the mother of a former Lied student after she found messages in the boy's Facebook account coming from Barclay. The messages led to the boy discussing to detectives, in the report, an April 2012 incident in which Barclay, who was the child's basketball coach and mentor, took the boy to the teacher's home after eating out. The boy, in the report, stated Barclay mentioning having engaged in a sexual act with "a gay man" and also catching two boys "trying to do the same" in the locker room. That led to Barclay, as the boy was stated as saying in the report, to ask the then-seventh grader whether he was gay and to perform the act on him. The boy told police he said no to Barclay.

    After the incident, the boy, in the report, said he would skip practice to avoid Barclay, but would then be contacted by him through Facebook. The boy told detectives Barclay, in the report, posted comments stating "he was not a pedophile" and that he "thought he could joke with him." The boy's mother, as she stated in the report, told police she let Barclay drive the child to and from basketball practice after he offered, due to her late work schedule. The boy indicated, in the report, Barclay contacted additional students, saying some were posed the same mention of pornography through Facebook.

    In August, detectives, in the report, spoke with a couple of Barclay's former students who were said to have contact with the teacher. One student, in the report, said Barclay asked him through Facebook messages about watching porn, as well as telling the boy that he watches "too much porn." "You can porn over here," the student stated Barclay as saying in the report. The student said, in the report, the message "really freaked [him] out."

    Police also spoke to two high school students whom were taught by Barclay while they were in seventh grade at Lied. Both told police, in the report, they were each recently messaged on Facebook by Barclay. One of the students stated, in the report, Barclay messaged the boy at "odd hours of the night" and also asked him about "watching porn." The other student, as he stated in the report, thought it was "a little strange" Barclay tried to contact him, because they had no contact in four years.

    Las Vegas Sun: After teacher arrests, district considers how much social media interaction to allow (Sept 27 2013)

    What may seem like harmless communication can balloon into something more, resulting in inappropriate conversations and, in some cases, sexual misconduct on behalf of the teacher, staff member or school volunteer ... The latter scenario led to the arrest of two Lied Middle School teachers — Michael Barclay, 44, on Wednesday, and Alphonso Washington, 47, on Aug. 27. Although separate cases, the similarities are striking: Barclay was the boys’ basketball coach. Washington coached the girls’ basketball team. And both cases involved electronic communication between the suspects and victims, police said.

    The Clark County School District, which has 40,000-some employees, averages about three arrests of teachers or staff members each year related to sexual misconduct, said CCSD Police Sgt. Mitch Maciszak. “The only common factor is some type of electronic communication has been used,” he said.
