Berry Elementary School teacher charged with fondling child

The Harris County District Attorney’s Office has accepted criminal charges against a kindergarten teacher previously assigned to Berry Elementary School following an HISD Police investigation into reports that he engaged in inappropriate conduct with a student.

The teacher – David Salisbury – was arrested after a criminal warrant was issued Friday.

The allegation was first reported to school officials in September at which time the teacher was removed from the classroom and an internal investigation begun. The administration also notified HISD and CPS of the conduct. Police then presented their findings to the Harris County District Attorney, who accepted criminal charges.

HISD takes situations such as this very seriously, as the safety of students is always the district’s top priority.
