A Davenport man who works for Rock Island schools has plead not guilty to charges he solicited a child.

Police arrested Brian R. Evans earlier this week after text messages sent to a ten year old girl's I-pod were discovered.

Court documents show some of those messages asked the girl to sit on Evans' lap, and allow him to spank her.

After his arrest, Thomas Jefferson elementary school sent out a letter to parents explaining the situation. It left many parents sick.

"I was sickened, I was saddened by that, I was upset for the family that has to deal with that person doing that to their child," says parent James Rossi.

He has two students at the school, a second and fifth grader. He says they have all the toys kids have now.

"They both have I-pods they both have Nintendo D.S., my oldest has a laptop in his room, has a flat screen tv in his room, he has pretty much every technological advantage you can have," says Rossi.

He takes those toys seriously. Talks with his children about appropriate behavior.

"The only people they need to be talking to are people that they know, or people that I know, keep it to family, friends, anybody that, just because they say they're somebody doesn't mean that's actually who they are," says Rossi.

Parent Lee Conner says, "Not necessarily via cell phone, but inappropriate touch, inappropriate talk, and that type of stuff we've talked about."

He has two children in school too. He says he discussed the letter with them. Emphasizing it's okay to talk to their dad.

"Just to make sure that she felt safe, and to make sure she understood that having communication between the parents is a good thing to have," says Conner.

Taking all the steps they can to keep their children safe.

Evans has pleaded not guilty to all four counts against him.

He's out on bond.

The school district has placed him on administrative leave, and banned him from school grounds at this time.
