A Southeast Middle School teacher resigned this morning amid allegations that he violated parole.
Antonio Demont Bagley, 36, was arrested and placed in the Rowan County Detention Center on Friday.
Bagley is serving 36 months probation. He was convicted of felony identity fraud/theft in Cabarrus County in 2009, according to the N.C. Department of Corrections website.
He has been employed with the Rowan-Salisbury School System since February 2002.
Rita Foil, spokeswoman for the district, said the school system does require criminal background checks.
“When Mr. Bagley was hired by our district in 2002, everything was in order,” she said in an e-mail to the Post.
