A tech support worker who worked for Fairfax County Public School at Bailey’s Elementary School in Falls Church since 2011 was arrested and charged with sexual battery and taking indecent liberties with a child last Tuesday.

Dennis Belyea, 45, of Culpepper was taken into custody and charged with three counts of aggravated sexual battery and three counts of taking indecent liberties with a child. He’s currently being held without bond with a court date that’s yet to be determined.

According to Prince William County Police, Belyea allegedly assaulted a teenage boy, a known acquaintance, in a Manassas home on more than one occasion between 2004 and 2010. The victim, now a 24 year-old man, disclosed the alleged abuse to his family members in September 2014.

According to a spokesperson for Fairfax County Public Schools, Belyea was hired in 2003 by the school system to work at Edison Academy as a computer systems teacher. He was suspended from his job at Bailey’s without pay following his arrest last week.
