A 70-year-old former Littleton Public Schools teacher faces charges for sexually assaulting a student 20 years ago.
Michael Camelio of Highlands Ranch was arrested Feb. 28 by Arapahoe County sheriff’s deputies after a woman came forward to report being repeatedly victimized by him while she was his student in the late 1990s.
Camelio’s arrest warrant, issued after the sheriff’s resulting investigation, included five counts of sexual assault on a child by a person in a position of trust.
Camelio was employed by Littleton Public Schools from 1982 to 2002. He was director of education and principal at Mark Hopkins Elementary School until 1988. He then taught computer science at Newton Middle School before transferring to Powell Middle School, where the alleged assaults occurred. He later taught at Regis University.
Camelio can be prosecuted due to Colorado’s removal of the statute of limitations for those accused of sexual assault on a child by a person in a position of trust.
Anyone with additional information about the alleged crime or the suspect is asked to contact investigator Melinda Schubert at 720-874-4042.
