A ‘creepy’ schoolteacher was probed by police after six pupils said he touched them inappropriately or made them sit on his lap.
Luis Andres Busso, 38, is said to have embarked on the campaign of sexual misconduct against girls aged just seven and eight at the Ira. J Earl Elementary School in Las Vegas, NV.

Court documents seen by the Las Vegas review journal told how third grade teacher Busso allegedly asked two pupils to sit on his lap.
The teacher, who was last week charged with lewdness and unlawful contact with a minor, is accused to have molested others by touching their backs, necks, buttocks and under their shirts.
One mom who complained about Busso said her daughter got a ‘creepy vibe’ off him after he pulled her aside during school picture day to comment on her appearance and touched her back.
The first girl to complain told how Busso molested her while simultaneously telling her she was ‘doing a good job in class’.
The papers claimed: ‘(A student’s mother) described how her daughter told her she would move around so he wouldn’t touch her, but he would still continue.’
Another student told of a time that she ‘ran back to her seat so (Busso) wouldn’t touch her.’
His alleged abuses were first reported to authorities in January 2017, with the teacher fired last May, after almost nine years at the school.
Busso denies the claims made against him and said he gave students high fives or touched their backs ‘to show they were doing a good job’.
