HOTL,Mich. (WILX) - New details Friday into Patrick Daley, a former Holt fifth grade teacher charged with six counts of criminal sexual conduct

News 10 learned the alleged victims were four boys, who went to their principal claiming they were touched inappropriately.

The details are outlined in the court documents News 10 has obtained.

All of the boys were students in Daley's classroom at Washington Woods Middle School and each described what the 35-year-old teacher allegedly did to them.

"To have your kids go into school and wondering about what their teachers are really all about. We don't know," said Debra O-Brien, Holt parent.

Those four boys stated that Daley touched them inappropriately.
The first said that he was touched on top of and under his clothes in the butt area, and on top of his clothes in the penis area.

The second claimed Daley touched him multiple times on top of his clothes near the butt area.

The third boy described Daley touching him on his bare thigh and on top of and under his clothes in the lower back area.

The investigation continued and identified a fourth boy, who claims Daley attempted to touch him.

And the boy said, "don't touch me."

The documents claim the boys went to their principal who then called the Ingham County Sheriff's Department.

But for parents, the news is disturbing.

"It's scary, and I don't believe it's just happened in Holt, and I believe it happens in other districts too," said O'Brien.

Documents show that multiple children in the classroom and adults were interviewed
and according to the investigator. They all gave corroborating statements to the victims' claims.

Daley was also a hockey coach at holt high school.

Daley is currently out on bond and due back in court October 11th.
