Local group aims to protect children from predators 05/16/2017 7:32 am PDT Comments WTIC via WTIC: PLAINVILLE, Conn. -- (WTIC) -- A former Plainville High School special education teacher is under investigation for what the school is calling inappropriate off-campus activities. A letter was sent home to parents alerting them that a staff member was put on paid administrative leave on April 3, and later resigned due to the allegations this year. In a second letter obtained through Freedom of Information requests, FOX61 learned that teacher is Mr. James Batt. The letter from the Superintendent to the teacher acknowledges Batt was in a video sent to administrators by a student which was produced by Prey on Predators, also known as POPsquad. Superintendent Maureen Brummett wrote, “Due to the disturbing nature of the video, in which you were allegedly meeting a male who you believed to be 15 years old, I contacted the police.” Plainville Police confirm there is an criminal investigation underway involving Batt but are releasing few details at this time.
