Oglethorpe Point Elementary Assistant Principal arrested on child molestation charges

According to a robo call to Oglethorpe Elementary (OPE) School parents this morning from Principal Dr. Anna Wiles, OPE Assistant Principal Eric Cabrera was arrested and taken into custody this morning by Glynn County Police for charges stemming from a summer investigation based on accusations of misconduct with a former student from several years ago. The Glynn County Police informed school officials of the investigation last week and Cabrera was placed in administrative leave pending the outcome. According to Glynn County police 40-year-old Cabrera was arrested for Child Molestation. The arrest of Cabrera comes after an investigation into allegations of inappropriate sexual contact with a student on school property in 2014. Mr. Cabrera was a teacher at Oglethorpe Point Elementary School at that time. The investigation began after the former student disclosed the inappropriate contact and the Glynn County Police Department was notified. “Once notified, the allegation was investigated thoroughly and a Superior Court Judge found that probable cause did exist for Mr. Cabrera’s arrest. It was important to bring some resolution to this before the new school year started,” said Glynn County Police Chief John Powell. “I am thankful for our working relationship with the Glynn County Schools Police, who provided support during this investigation when needed,” Powell said. The investigation into Mr. Cabrera’s conduct continues, and additional charges may be forthcoming. Any parent having information that could assist this investigation is asked to call Investigator Clay Palmer at 912-554-7847.
