Two Pasco County school district employees -- a pre-k teacher and a janitor -- found themselves in custody Thursday for their inappropriate actions with students

The prekindergarten teacher, Leslie Kostakis, was arrested on child abuse charges. She's accused of grabbing a 4-year-old by the arm and forcing her to the ground after the child stayed outside as reading time was to begin.

Kostakis, who worked at Richey Elementary, was placed on administrative leave.

The janitor, Alex Baldwin, was arrested on a charge of transmitting harmful material to a minor. He is accused of sending nude photos of himself to a 17-year-old female student at Fivay High School, where he worked.

Baldwin resigned his job when the school district became aware of his behavior, in late September.
