A former teaching assistant for Wilde Lake High School in Columbia, Maryland has been charged with several sex offense counts in a case involving a student. 29-year-old Divaughn Vanez Furby allegedly had a sexual relationship with a 17-year-old student while he was working for the school.
Police began investigating Furby after receiving information that he had been involved in a sexual relationship with a minor who attended the school. The authorities conducted interviews with the victim and others and analyzed cell phone data before arresting and charging Furby with multiple sex offense counts.
According to the police, these crimes are believed to have taken place off school grounds.
Furby stopped working for the Howard County School system in August of 2019. He was employed at the Roger Carter Community Center in Ellicott City at the time of his arrest but has since been fired.
Police have encouraged anyone with information or who believes they were a victim of Furby to call 410-313-STOP.
