The current story circulating around town is that Moseby was credibly accused of sexual misconduct by SRVHS cheerleaders. District dismissed these claims. Students then started calling this teacher a pedophile at school since the administration did nothing about it. District then decided the cheerleaders were "racist" in nature against Moseby who was then moved to a Middle School (DVMS) with younger girls. If District took claims seriously, the Arizona arrest might have (finally) been uncovered and he would have been immediately dismissed. Or would he given that SRVUSD still hasn't fired him even though he is waiting arraignment and the Arizona arrest is a mater of fact?

There needs to be answers and accountability. Perhaps the Superintendent needs to take step back and assess what his priorities should be at SRVUSD.

"H", Thank you for your comments! You have provided sorely needed depth in this story. It would be additionally helpful if you could amplify your comment about "The Arizona Arrest!" We read terrible accounts of this kind of child abuse in school districts around the country, only to find that we here in the San Ramon Valley are not immune to what is going on elsewhere. School Superintendents are the country's "highest paid migrant workers!" When the community finds out they've breached their contractual duties, they are sent off to the next district with a huge payout, buying up the remainder of their contracts. Sad, but true!

Paul Clark - The whole reason Dr. Malloy is at SRVUSD was he left Toronto during calls for his resignation due to alleged incidents of racism in trying to establish an "equity" program. Sound familiar? Web Link

The East Bay Times ( Web Link ) reports that Nicholas Moseby was charged in Gilbert, Arizona with providing alcohol to a teen in 2009. In 2010, he was charged with public intoxication in Santa Barbara.

Those cases were reportedly not resolved. Additionally in 2009, however, Maricopa County, Arizona judges issued warrants naming Moseby (1) for failing to show for his arraignment hearing and (2) for failing to submit to court-ordered fingerprinting.

Moseby was charged in 2016 following a November 2015 arrest for soliciting prostitution after he responded to an ad set-up by undercover Oakland police and arrived at a Mandela Parkway hotel after agreeing to a $120 fee.

“There is no excuse, justification, or explanation as to why the San Ramon Valley Unified School District and Nor Cal Elites hired him with his past crimes in Alameda County and Arizona,” said Jason Runkel, attorney for two girls allegedly victimized by Moseby. “It’s equally disturbing,” he added, that “SVRUSD employees referred their own students to him for one-on-one trainings.”

My comment, as I expressed at the September 20 SRVUSD School Board meeting: maybe, just maybe, it’s now time for the Board to reverse its adoption of “Stamped: Racism, Anti-Racism, and You” as a 7th-grade textbook, despite (for example) its recommendation of “N.W.A.” (look it up) and that group’s vile celebration of thug-rapist criminal behavior in “Straight Outta Compton” as a fount of “change and empowerment” ( Web Link ).

@Mr. Arata...

I agree that the SRVUSD vetting process leaves something to be desired as this particular hire could have been averted.

As to the Oakland solicitation arrest...that was entrapment on the part of the Oakland Police Department aka a setup which could easily be challenged in court by a saavy criminal defense attorney.

The “Stamped: Racism, Anti-Racism, and You” was implemented as a 7th-grade textbook to enlighten students living in predominantly white/affluent, upper middle class neighborhoods that there is an entirely different world that exists outside of their everyday perceptions, one filled with crime, poverty, and street violence..all attributable to systemic racism and a lack of equal socio-economic opporunities.

Melinda Jeffries - Are you saying that Moseby DIDN'T answer an advertisement for prostitution? Every scumbag arrested for the crime makes the same bogus claim just the same as people who by drugs at sting operations claim they were entrapped. Problem with both of these arguments was no one made Moseby look at nor answer advertisements for illegal sexual activity. Are you also going to defend Moseby's arrest providing alcohol to a minor that was later assaulted?
