Liberty school employee accused of sexual assault, child pornography

Posted:
LIBERTY, Ill. (WGEM) - Administrators with the Liberty Public School District were tight lipped Friday after police said they arrested a school employee for sexual assault and child pornography.

Trent Taylor, 26, of Golden was arrested Wednesday by Adams County Sheriff's deputies. He has been charged with aggravated criminal sexual abuse and possession of child pornography.

Court documents state Taylor "committed an act of sexual penetration with a minor." Documents state the girl was between 13-years-old and 17-years-old.

While court records state Taylor is a Liberty Public Schools employee, his position is not listed. However, Taylor is listed as a "day custodian" in a directory published by the Regional Superintendent of Schools.

Liberty Public Schools Superintendent Kelle Bunch also would not verify what position Taylor holds at the school or what contact he may have had with students. Court records show a judge has ordered Taylor to "stay 500 feet from Liberty High School."

"The Liberty School District has and continues to take action necessary to protect the safety and well-being of its students and staff members," Bunch said.

Bunch would not comment on the district's background check protocol for employees.
