A former English teacher and basketball coach at Hurley Middle School in Seekonk was arrested Friday on suspicion of enticing a child under the age of 16 and accosting and annoying a person of the opposite sex, according to television station WPRI in Providence. Marco Correia, 27, was held on $5,000 bail and has a pretrial hearing scheduled for Nov. 7, according to WPRI.
The interim superintendent tells Eyewitness News Correia was placed under administrative leave after she received a complaint a couple of weeks ago, and that Correia resigned from teaching at the school soon after.
Correia had been teaching at the school since 2007. Seekonk Patch will have more information on this story soon.
