Ft. Myers tutor charged with sexually assaulting Villas Elementary student

Ft. Myers tutor charged with sexually assaulting Villas Elementary student

A 66-year-old Fort Myers tutor was arrested Wednesday and charged with sexually assaulting a child at Villas Elementary.

According to the News-Press, Gregory Lancaster tutored the victim on multiple occasions last year at Villas Elementary.

Police say the victim told her mother Lancaster had shown her videos and photos of sex acts involving animals, adults, and children. The victim also told police that the 66-year-old man masturbated in front of her, performed oral sex on her, took photos of her, and threatened to harm her family if she told anyone.

The school district outsourced tutoring services to Alternatives Unlimited, where Lancaster was employed.

Thanks to the tremendous courage of the brave young victim in this case, Gregory Lancaster remains in Lee County Jail on no bond, charged with sexual assault on a minor, lewd and lascivious behavior and distributing obscene material to a minor.

It is not clear how many other students Lancaster tutored, but it is my hope that school district officials and law enforcement are urging anyone who may have witnessed or suffered abuse by Lancaster to come forward and report it to police.

When a brave survivor comes forward to share their story, they empower other victims of childhood sexual abuse to break their silence and to begin the healing process.
