Teacher charged with attempted lewdness appears in court

Posted: Updated:

A Lied Middle School teacher accused of asking an underage student to engage in a sex act made his initial appearance in court Friday.

An affidavit-and-warrant hearing was held for Michael Barclay in Las Vegas Justice Court.

Barclay, 44, surrendered to detectives on Wednesday as a part of the investigation, police said.

Clark County School District confirmed Barclay's arrest, adding he was placed on paid leave pending an investigation. Barclay taught U.S. history at Lied Middle School, the CCSD official said. Barclay also coached boys' basketball at the school, Metro said.

Metro's Sexual Assault Section received information of allegations of inappropriate conduct involving a Lied teacher in July 2013, according to police.

According to a booking log for Clark County Detention Center, Barclay was booked on counts of attempted statutory sex seduction by a person over 21 years old and first-degree attempted lewdness on a child under 14 years old.

Barclay's arrest marks the second time a teacher from Lied Middle School was arrested for lewdness. In August, Alphonso Washington, 47, was arrested in connection to allegations of committing the acts on campus. Las Vegas Metro police said the arrest was the result of an investigation that began in May.
