A former special education teacher at Colonel Zadok Magruder High School in Derwood, Maryland has been arrested for allegedly sexually abusing a student from the school. 42-year-old Peter Wright Priest Mason was arrested on November 20 and is charged with sexual abuse of a minor and fourth-degree sex offense by a person in a position of authority.
At the time of the alleged abuse, Mason was working at Colonel Zadok Magruder High School. However, he was working at Magruder High School at the time of his arrest, where he has been teaching since 2015.
Detectives began their investigation on November 2 and Magruder High School placed Mason on administrative leave.
