An unlicensed school ‘social worker’ from Las Vegas who was
arrested last week for alleged inappropriate behaviour with two students has historical charges for domestic violence and an arrest for rape.
Police documents reveal that Anthony Wilson, 31, has two prior domestic violence charges and a prior arrest for allegedly raping a person incapable of consent.
Winston faces charges of kidnapping a minor, child abuse, two offences of open and gross lewdness, and attempts to engage in sexual conduct with a student.
These historical offences of rape and domestic violence come from before October 2018, when he was employed by Chaparral High School in an unlicensed social work role as a ‘safe school professional’.
He was arrested by Clark County School District police following an investigation at Chaparral High School, Las Vegas, which identified his inappropriate behavior with two students.
Chaparral High School have confirmed that Winston was a contracted employee who worked in an unlicensed social work role as a ‘safe school professional’. He was in the process of becoming a licensed social worker.
While searching law enforcement dispatch records, school police involved in the investigation into Winston’s conduct found that he had a “prior arrest for rape victim incapable of consent” and two separate charges of battery on a spouse.
At this time it remains unclear when the prior arrests and charges were filed and where his alleged offences tool place.
It is unclear if Winston was convicted of the charges.
When asked to comment on Winston’s historical offences and whether background checks were run prior to his appointment in October 2018, a school district official said that background checks are run on all potential hires, and people convicted of a felony will not be hired by the district.
“We cannot comment on ongoing law enforcement investigations or information in individual employee files,” the district said in response to further questions posed by local press.
