CMS teacher accused of making student disrobe faces 6 more child exploitation charges

The former Alexander Graham Middle School math teacher charged last month with sexually exploiting a minor is facing more charges.

Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police said Friday that they have charged Charles Ray Naas, Jr., 26, with six additional counts of third-degree sexual exploitation of a minor. Investigators did not say what led to the additional charges or how many youths might be involved.

“During the investigation, detectives obtained information and evidence which led them to obtaining additional warrants for Naas’ arrest,” according to a CMPD press release issued Friday.

Naas was first arrested on July 1 on a charge of taking indecent liberties with a minor. Police said he allegedly required one 13-year-old student to go through a physical exam during a tutoring session.

A warrant detailing the alleged incident stated the student was attending a “tutoring camp” in Naas’ home on June 27, when Naas made him sign a form promising to keep what happened during the session private from his family, friends and social media.

Then Naas produced a second form, which he said was an official CMS document requiring a physical examination for tutoring camp, the warrant states.

First, Naas examined the 13-year-old in his underwear, checking his height, weight, pulse and other basic characteristics, according to the warrant. Naas then put on medical-type gloves and told the student he needed to examine his genitals without underwear. He then touched the student inappropriately, the warrant states.

The student told his parents what had happened that night, and the next day they informed Bob Folk, principal of Alexander Graham Middle School, the warrant states. On June 30, CMS Police got involved and contacted CMPD’s Crimes Against Children Unit.

Investigators said at the time that they were trying to determine if there were additional victims.

The investigation continues and detectives are asking anyone with additional information about the suspect to call Crime Stoppers at 704-334-1600, or detectives Tamilla Gibbs at 704-336-4185 and Brian Chilton at 704-749-4331.
