ALBANY, GA (WALB) -  Several Dougherty County's School Board members say they're not happy having to deal with another situation involving a school employee and sexual allegations.

Just last week the board was divided in a vote to fire or accept the resignation of 38 year old Reastgo Holmes who was charged with trying to pay teenagers for sex.

Earlier this year three former Dougherty County School employees were indicted, Paraprofessional Tahira Williams was indicted on family violence and burglary charges after she broke into a home and pulled a gun on a man, former Monroe High employee Lakisha Williams was indicted on theft by conversion charges after stealing money dance line members gave her for uniforms last summer and former Dougherty County School Police Officer Willie Hardrick was indicted for theft by deception, forgery, and violation of oath by a public officer.

School officials hope new, tougher background checks by the Professional Standards commission will screen employees better. They say the board will not tolerate actions like this.

The board is expected to discuss the latest issue at their meeting on Wednesday.
