Accounting Teacher Arrested for Showing Assets to Class
I saw a bumper sticker once that said “Accountants have Great Assets.” Perhaps Raymond Devaughn Taylor was trying to prove the veracity of this statement when he disrobed for his accounting class last week:
Cobb County Sheriff’s Office said Raymond Taylor, of Kennesaw, was arrested for allegedly exposing himself to [accounting] students he was teaching at Kennesaw State University.Raymond Devaughn Taylor, 57, is accused of taking off his clothes during a class he was teaching, according to an arrest warrant obtained by the Atlanta Journal Constitution (AJC).A student in the class reported the incident to school officials Friday, Arlethia Perry-Johnson, vice president of external affairs for the university, told the AJC.
“We took this issue very seriously when the student complaint was registered,” Perry-Johnson said Tuesday evening.
Taylor, of Kennesaw, was arrested Monday at the university and charged with public indecency, according to jail records. He was released from jail Tuesday afternoon after posting $5,000 bond.
Taylor declined to discuss the incident when a WSB radio reporter called him at home late Tuesday.
Taylor, who worked in the business department on a contract basis, taught an accounting class during the fall semester on Tuesdays and Thursdays, according to the class schedule posted on the university’s website.
“He will not be teaching again at KSU,” interim Provost Ken Harmon told the AJC.
