Accused foot licker worked for Richmond County School System
AUGUSTA, Ga. (WRDW/WAGT) - A man who until recently worked for the Richmond County School System was arrested after tickling and licking a 7-year-old boy’s feet at Urban Air Adventure Park, according to authorities.
Caurey Rollins, 25, of Augusta, was arrested Wednesday and accused of licking a child’s feet between 3:30 p.m. and 4 p.m. Jan. 14.
Rollins was charged with non-aggravated child molestation.
At the time of the crime, he apparently worked at Glenn Hills Elementary School.
LOOKING BACK ON A SIMILAR CASE:
An incident report from Richmond County deputies describes what happened at Urban Air Adventure Park, 207 Robert C. Daniel Jr. Parkway.
Upon arrival, deputies met with business owner William Gilbert, who stated Rollins was unaccompanied in the building and in a fenced-in area where children play.
The guardian of the victim told Gilbert that Rollins approached the victim in the fenced area.
The victim stated Rollins tickled his feet, asked him to remove his socks and licked both of his feet.
Rollins told deputies he was originally there with family, but they’d left.
The owner stated that security cameras did not record the incident due to location.
The guardian of the children told News 12 the business was very apologetic and said it plans to expand the coverage areas of the cameras.
News 12 learned that until recently, Rollins had been an employee of the Richmond County School System.
The Glenn Hills Elementary Facebook page shows a photo of him that was posted Jan. 9, indicating he may have been an employee there five days before the foot-licking incident.
The school’s website didn’t list him in any role as of Thursday.
The school district provided no information for News 12 beyond a terse statement that “Rollins is no longer an employee of the Richmond County School System.”
For further information, the district insisted that News 12 file an open records request, which we have done. It’s a legal hoop the district is allowed to make us jump through to get the information.
The Georgia Professional Standards Commission was open about Rollins’ certification. It said he was certified as a paraprofessional educator as of Sept. 27, 2022, and that the certification is valid through June 30, 2027.
Rollins was in Richmond County jail on Thursday, according to jail records.
