Miami Beach police say a Providence elementary school teacher faces a felony criminal charge after allegedly taking a 15-year-old boy from Rhode Island to Florida without his parents’ knowledge. The police report said David Jones, 56, of Cranston, was arrested Wednesday after the youth was reported missing in Rhode Island. The report said the boy’s parents later learned he was in Miami Beach with Jones, who was charged with interference with custody. The boy told authorities that his parents did not consent to his trip to Florida and that Jones wanted to have a sexual relationship with him, according to police. Jones has been placed on administrative leave, according to a statement from Providence schools spokeswoman Christina O’Reilly. Miami-Dade jail records showed that Jones was being held on $9,000 bond. (AP)
