Alleged Gay Pedophile Out On Bail

This a warning to every parent who are leaving their children unattended while they are playing in public place: an elementary school teacher is accused of sexually abusing a student in his Prince George's County classroom is OUT ON BAIL!

Erwin Magnaye, a teacher at William Paca Elementary School in Landover, was arrested on 5 May 2015. Prince George's County Police say the mother of the alleged victim, a 9-year-old boy, contacted them last February.

According to court documents, Magnaye had inappropriate encounters with the boy, who was one of his students, between September 2014 and January 2015. The child specifically told Police that Magnaye kissed him and also inappropriately touched him on several occasions while the two were alone in a classroom.

Prince George's County school said that Magnaye, a science and math instructor, was on administrative leave. School officials added that they are cooperating with the police investigation, and that counselors are available for students and parents.

Magnaye is charged with sex abuse of a minor, second-degree assault and several sex offenses. He was initially put in custody, but was later released from the state’s Department of Corrections and now awaits his preliminary hearing.

If anyone has information about the case, they are urged to call police at 301-772-4930. Anyone wishing to remain anonymous can call Crime Solvers at 1-866-411-TIPS (8477) or text "PGPD" plus their message to CRIMES (274637).

Meanwhile, everyone is urged not to support any effort by some deranged individuals to raise money in support of Magnaye. The case is very strong against the suspected pedophile and there are other more deserving initiatives where good samaritans can donate and help, such as the starving children and children under difficult circumstances.

The Philippine Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) are also requested not to provide any legal assistance to Magnaye. Given the limited funds available coming from the taxpayers, it is better spent on improving local school facilities and health centers located in remote areas of the country.
