IMMOKALEE, Fla. - We now know more details about the 60-year-old Golden Gate man accused of molesting a child while volunteering at an elementary school in Immokalee.
The school district says Robert Alter has been a volunteer at Highlands Elementary for more than two years. The Sheriff's Office tells WINK News they're still investigating if Alter molested any other children in that time period, or at Pinecrest Elementary where his daughter works.
Nora Campbell lives right across from Highlands and has a 6-year-old son that attends there. "I was really concerned. I asked my son to look at the picture to see if he recognized him and he said no."
Campbell is almost equally as upset she hasn't received notice from the school yet.
"I was shocked because I'm right next door and I barely found out over the Internet."
The school district says they are sending a letter home with kids today. They also explain that Alter has been volunteering since October 2008, and helps students with reading.
He's a level one volunteer, which means his license has been checked against the Florida Sex Offender list, but he's not on there.
"I know they do background checks when they have volunteers, and even when I've gone in there for my son's birthday they ask for your license, or you're not going in there," Campbell tells us of Highlands security.
Alter was arrested in Charlotte County, but will be transferred to Collier's jail. A spokesperson for the Collier Sheriff's Office said they were not sure exactly when that would happen.
