    Dallas Morning News: Dallas ISD teacher arrested on suspicion of sexual assault in school locker room (Feb 21 2013)
    • The 17-year-old student told police that [Philon] Deberry had been “harassing her, hugging and kissing on her since early September,” according to the arrest warrant affidavit. She said he told her no one would believe her if she reported it and that he would lose his wife and children, which made her feel guilty, the affidavit states. The arrest warrant affidavit says the assault occurred in December at the school. The girl told police Deberry lured her to a gym area by telling her that one of her friends, who attends college, was there. He took her to the back of a locker room area, ushered her into the room and locked the door. The girl told police that he started unbuttoning his shorts and she was scared and tried to flee, but Deberry grabbed her by the hair. She yelled but nobody came, the affidavit states. She told police that Deberry forced her head to his crotch and forced her to perform a sex act. She said she hit him and when he eased his grip, she was able to run away, the affidavit states.
    • Around Feb. 13, Deberry was placed on leave in an unrelated incident that involved him transporting individual students to various doctors for athletic physical exams, according to DISD. At that time, the district contacted Child Protective Services and an investigation was launched. After Deberry was placed on leave, the girl told a school administrator about the harassment and the incident in the gym area. The administrator contacted police. The girl explained to police that she felt safe since he was no longer at the school and she didn’t want him to come back and harass her.
    • According to a search warrant affidavit, an anonymous tipster indicated that Deberry may have had sexual relations with one or more students in previous school years. Items listed on the search warrant include a cell phone, computers and DVDs.

    Mr. Deberry wS one of the nicest and most caring teachers I had. I find this story to be outrageous. Mr. Deberry went out of his way to help us kids. This was at a different school district than DISD but still, he was the most inspiring and helpful teachers I had in high school. I was newer to the district and he opened his classroom in the morning so we students could come and talk amongst eachother or ask him for advice with issues. He helped me a lot and to see this makes me think that someone's story might be off.

    I realize this but maybe one girl didn't like him and made up the story and another girl went with it, seen it happen before. I just remember him really caring about us and helping us if he could. He absolutely adored his little girl (daughter) and I couldn't imagine this happening. And if you see the area he was teaching at and why he was originally put on leave, it was for taking kids, who probably couldn't have had their parents do it, to the doctor for the check ups required. I'm assuming these were for sports, if its required, which it is, it should be provided in the schools. Especially for underprivileged students.
