A Florida history teacher is out of the classroom after allegedly telling a 13-year-old student she had “nice, perky t**s” in front of the class, wftv.com reports.
The student accused William Musto, 44, of making the inappropriate comments about her body last Friday at Discovery Intermediate School in Poinciana, Fla. Musto has been reassigned to non-teaching duties while the Osceola County Sheriff’s Office and the Department of Children and Families investigate, wftv.com reports.
While the victim’s mother says she is filing a police report, some students are coming to Musto’s defense.
“He didn’t do anything! He just corrected someone about a dress code,” one emotional student told wftv.com.
“He acts like a kid. He tries to be cool with the kids. Sometimes words just come out and it’s too much,” another student said.
Osceola County School District will not release Musto’s disciplinary record, but some students told wftv.com that last Christmas Musto dressed up as Santa and had girls sit on his lap.
Musto will be working away from students until the investigation is complete, wft.com reports.
