Local music teacher accused of child molestation

A local music teacher has been arrested and charged with lewd and lascivious molestation against two brothers.

The boy’s mother went to the Palm Beach Gardens Police Department on Dec. 27 to report allegations of molestation against Terrence Dwarika, 38, of Riviera Beach.

The mother told police the boys had Dwarika as a teacher at Trinity Christian School and recently had taken private lessons from him as an after-school activity.

The mother told police that over a span of three years, her boys were in Dwarika’s care with no other supervision.

One recent occasion was on Dec. 26 when Dwarika picked up the children to take them to the Gardens Mall to buy them a Christmas gift.

When the boys returned home, they told their mother that Dwarika took them to a house where he inappropriately touched one of them. When the children told Dwarika that their mother would not like what he did, the boys said Dwarika told them to keep it a secret.

Police arrested Dwarika and charged him with lewd and lascivious molestation.

Dwarika is being held with no bond.
