Carrollwood Day School Teacher Arrested

The Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office has arrested a teacher at Carrollwood Day School for sexual misconduct.

Jaime Melton, 42, an English teacher at Carrollwood Day School, located at 1515 W. Bearss Avenue, engaged in sexual relations with the victim, a student, in September. 

On September 10, 2022, probable cause was developed and a warrant was obtained for Melton. She was arrested on September 11, 2022, for Sexual Battery.

"This woman was a trusted member of this community who was responsible for the education and well-being of students, instead she violated that trust," said Sheriff Chad Chronister. "As a parent, I am disgusted and hope she faces the full consequences of her actions."

At this time, this appears to be an isolated incident, but anyone with additional information is asked to call the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office at (813)247-8200.
