The latest Tulsa Police affidavit reveals the Skelly Elementary school counselor who accused the assistant principal of inappropriate touching, was scolded for reporting the behavior.
Robert Yerton, Jr. faces two counts of lewd molestation and two counts of child sexual abuse. He's about to lose his job as an assistant principal with the district.
The affidavit describes how in October 2009, Skelly's counselor told the principal that Yerton inappropriately touched 2 boys in her office, and that another teacher also expressed concerns.
The document reveals that principal Katy Ackley then warned Yerton about the accusations.
Ackley emailed, "I intended to wait and talk to you face to face in the morning, but rather than blindside you. I think it's best to let you know the situation so you are prepared tomorrow.
The affidavit also shows the counselor was given a written admonishment in April 2010, to which she wrote a rebuttal.
Last week, the school district's attorney got involved.
Doug Mann emailed the principal and the area superintendent saying, "I would like for you to both sit down together and spend as long as it takes to go through her rebuttal, literally line-by-line and word-by-word and you create a rebuttal to every bit of it. Your rebuttal to her rebuttal should be as detailed as necessary to get across the point that she is a big liar."
Mann emailed 2NEWS a lengthy response. He says, "TPD deliberately omitted important language in the affidavit that showed my reasoning as to why the employee in question's credibility was suspect."
Mann also accused detectives of violating attorney, client privilege and disregarding the orderly process of law.
The school district is not making any comments.
