Who is Darrell Sams from Delaware?
According to a New Castle County police statement released Monday, a former Appoquinimink school district administrator has been accused of sexually soliciting a former student. Darrell Sams Jr., who was 39 years old in Camden Wyoming. He was taken into police custody on Friday. Darrell Sams was listed as a digital communications technology teacher at Middletown High School since 2018 on a LinkedIn profile with his name and photo. Sams previously worked for the Caesar Rodney School District, according to the report. Although it is unknown when Sams last worked for the Appoquinimink district, a district official said they were aware of his arrest and were working with police.
A representative for the Appoquinimink School District, Danielle Pro-Hudson, stated that the district learned of Mr. Sams’ misbehavior in November 2022. Per district protocol, the district immediately reported the incident to law enforcement for investigation. . Such claims, according to Pro-Hudson, are treated “with the utmost seriousness and concern.” “Our number one focus continues to be the health and safety of our students,” she said. “Anyone in the neighborhood who has information they want to share is welcome to call the New Castle County Police,” she read in the statement.
According to the sources, detectives with the New Castle County Police Department began investigating the matter in February in response to an allegation that Sams had sent a 17-year-old Appoquinimink School District alumnus some sexually suggestive texts. . Police said that during the investigation, officers discovered that the communications were exchanged in June 2022. Sams was taken to jail without incident Friday when officers visited his home armed with a search warrant. Sams has been released after his arraignment on a $60,000 cash bond.
