Bailey's Elementary School employee arrested for sexual battery

Belyea [PWCPD]
An employee at Bailey’s Elementary School, Dennis Corwin Belyea, was arrested by Prince William County Police Jan. 13 for sexually assaulting a teenage boy in Manassas several times over a six-year period beginning in 2004.

Belyea had been technology support specialist at Bailey’s Elementary School in Bailey’s Crossroads since 2011. Following the arrest, he was suspended by Fairfax County Public Schools without pay.


Belyea, 45, of Culpeper, was charged with three counts of aggravated sexual battery and three counts of taking indecent liberties with a child, the Prince William County Police Department reported June 16. The victim, now 24, told family members about the abuse in September. Belyea is being held in jail without bond.

Bailey’s Principal Marie Lemmon sent a message to parents Jan. 16 alerting them to “some unpleasant news” about the arrest of a technology specialist at the school on felony charges, although she didn’t identify the employee by name. Lemmon assured parents that the arrest “was unrelated to his school duties.”

“This is an unfortunate episode and certainly is not indicative of the wonderfully talented and professional staff we have at Bailey’s Elementary,” Lemmon wrote.

A follow-up message to parents from Lemmon on Jan. 21 says: “Prince William County Police are indicating that no Bailey’s students or FCPS students were involved. The specific charges he is facing are related to incidents that allegedly occurred between 2004 and 2010 in Manassas.”

Before working at Bailey’s, Belyea was a teacher at the Edison Academy, a career and technical education center based at Edison High School. He is currently the treasurer of the Virginia Association for Career and Technical Education. In 2011, he was recognized as the Virginia Advisor of the Year at the State Leadership Conference and Skills Competition.

    1. Oh yea I'm here. Now lets return this big fat piece of crap to sender. First I suggest we bag him in one big Hefty garbage bag (super strength), put the bag in FFX County garbage bin. Then send the garbage truck to south of the border and sell the SOB to some Mexicans for fodder.

    2. Sounds like a good anti-terrorist secret weapon. Maybe we can send half of him to the middle east and the other half to Mexico. Judging from the size of his head there may be enough to send to N Korea.

    3. Great idea. After the sale to the Mexicans we can use the proceeds to build a new school on the Wilston site.

      Can't believe the BOS did not think of this.

  2. Now where's that 'return to sender' commenter who always loves to point out how Fairfax is crime-ridden with illegal immigrants? Take note and learn: crime is not the family trade of one specific ethnic or socio-economic group.

    1. No worries, I'm here. As for your commentary, return to sender is not ethnic specific. As for the fat head teacher that was arrested. He needs to be returned to the red neck tribe he came from in West Virginia. I'm certain he would delighted for you to join him with the rest of your relatives.

    2. "As for your commentary, return to sender is not ethnic specific" - despite your claim, it's obvious why more than one person called you out just on ethnicity. And keep your holier-than-thou attitude to yourself; he's more likely to be your relative than mine

    3. I think u may be the sender's relative, so why don't you return yourself to the sender and give us all a relief from your arrogant and rude chatter.

  4. Let's just take a moment to talk to the anti-bullying crowd who think that schools should force students to turn over social media passwords so that they can be scrutinized for cyber-bullying. Does anybody doubt for a moment that a perp like this would quickly get his hands on those passwords for his own perverted use???

    It's weird to think that we are all neighbors here, living in this same area, sending our kids to the same schools and walking our dogs on the same streets, and we can be so mean to each other under the guise of internet anonymity. Let's remember that we are talking about real people and to real people. Be nice! Act the way you would want other people to treat your child or you mother, etc. Perhaps then we can put an end to these dehumanizing atrocities. Thank you.
