Former Dothan Teacher Charged With Soliciting Minors

There are more questions this morning, in the case of a former Dothan teacher arrested and charged with soliciting minors.

Investigators with the Dothan Police Department traveled to Seminole County, Georgia on Friday to arrest 34-year old Keaton Lamar Battle.

Battle is charged with two counts of enticing a child for immoral purposes.

Battle was employed as a teacher at PASS Academy when the offenses occurred.

Police say he just completed his first year of teaching at the academy and that the two warrants revolved around incidents involving male students.

Battle was arrested back in February of 2006 and charged with simple assault on a minor.

His criminal history is now making some wonder how he was employed by the Dothan City School System.

Battle was booked into the Dothan City Jail and transferred to the Houston County Jail on a $20,000 bond. He has since bonded out of jail.

    ONCE AGAIN, IT JUST PROVES HOW PATHETIC OUR SCHOOL SYSTEM IS IN DOTHAN. IF ALABAMA DOES NOT WANT TO BE CONSIDERED THE ARMPIT OF AMERICA, THEN THINGS LIKE THIS ARE GOING TO HAVE TO CHANGE. WHAT A PITY FOR OUR CHILDREN TO BE INVOLVED WITH THE DOTHAN SCHOOL SYSTEM.

    Maybe this time keaton should get what he deserve for hurting innocent little boys. And the school system around the dothan and Seminole county area should be ashamed for letting him work there without checking his background record because if he did it once he was capable of doing it again it could have been prevented the second time if Seminole county police department would have believed the person that reported it a year ago.

    I think that is a disgrace for an adult male(man)that with a sextual assault charge to be hired in a school system or setting that allows access to any underaged child (ren). What's more disgraceful is that he continues to be hired or facilitate these places of employment where children are or should be considered to be in a safe, stable environment. Please eliminate this animal from roaming our "free" streets of the United States of America. He truly deserves all of what's coming to him. Should he be allowed Constitutional Rights or the children?

    I just can not believe that Keaton would do something like this, but if he did do it, yes he need to be punish to the fulliness, the school board should yes have a blame in this cause they should check the background of everyone that is employed at the school system. I am also a teacher, and before that i have worked with Keaton at the job in dothan, where he was around kids all the time. And also who to say if he did the same thing at that job. If he would have messed with my child, he would not be alive today!!!!!!!!!!!!
