Recently, 36-year-old Michael McCray was arrested for allegedly raping and sexually assaulting two victims who are minors. McCray was arrested at the Jacksonville Lighthouse Charter School, where he is currently employed.
The alleged incidents occurred between August 2012 and June 2014, when McCray was employed as a boys’ basketball and track coach, and PE teacher at the Anthony School in Little Rock. The LRPD received a report from Anthony School claiming that a former teacher at the school had sex on several occasions with a juvenile victim, according to police reports.
A news report at KATV 7 revealed that it all began when a female student at the Anthony School cut her hand in PE class. McCray allegedly took her into a closet where first aid supplies were stored, closed the door, and began kissing her and grabbing her skirt as he pushed her against a wall. An affidavit claims McCray told the girl not to tell anyone, and the two began having sex although the girl reportedly told him she didn’t want to. The alleged victim said that she and a second victim would be assigned to ride with McCray to track meets, and that he would take them to his home and engage in sex with one of the girls.
