A jury trial began at 9am today for a former Richmond public school teacher’s aide who was accused of child sex crimes.
This started last May when Alex Erby was arrested on charges of taking indecent liberties with minors.
He was working as a teacher’s aide at G.H. Reid Elementary School on the southside of Richmond when he received the charges.
Recently, a new charge of assault and battery was brought up against him after a third person came forward with accusations against Erby.
Wednesday morning, a jury will begin to review the evidence and then determine a conclusion in the case.
