Roanoke Rapids NC Dec 23 2010 51-year-old William R. Davie middle school teacher is facing 11 counts of disseminating obscene material to minors under the age of 16 and 11 counts of contributing to the delinquency of a minor for reportedly showing students a sexual act on his laptop computer.
Maj. Bruce Temple, of the Halifax County Sheriff’s Office, said authorities responded to the middle school Monday in reference to complaints filed by parents regarding a teacher showing pornography to students in the classroom.
“School resource officers and detectives conducted an investigation,” Temple said.
Archie Sheldon Mcleod III, 51, of Roanoke Rapids, was charged with the crimes.
“Evidence was found in the case, to include a video of Mr. Mcleod showing the students a sexual act on a laptop computer,” Temple said. “The number of 11 counts is consistent with the number of students that were exposed to the material. All of the students were between the ages of 12 and 14 years of age. School officials have worked closely with deputies during the investigation and have contacted all of the parents of students that were offended.”
Temple said Mcleod is a longtime teacher and has had additional roles with the school.
“Further details in the case are being withheld for now, pending his processing and further investigation,” Temple said.

During the criminal trial, Alba testified a dancer told him the defendants were making crude comments. Alba said he confronted the men. There was conflicting testimony about who challenged whom to a fight.

When the men moved into view of a surveillance camera, Alba is seen pushing Stidham, then punching at Stidham’s companion and then back at Stidham. A melee ensued with Alba and Stidham on the floor and others running to both men.
