Ex-BCHS teacher back to working for district

Jacqueline DeSilva is back to working for the Clark County School District.

The former special education teacher at Boulder City High School is employed at Mannion Middle School in Henderson.

DeSilva was arrested Jan. 13 and faced charges of assault with a deadly weapon and discharging of a firearm within a prohibited area.

The assault charge was dropped and the count of discharging a weapon was downgraded to misdemeanor trespassing. DeSilva was originally accused of firing a weapon at her husband after a night out in January.

Clark County School District Public Information Officer David Roddy said DeSilva was recently hired by the middle school, but could not divulge if she was working as a special education teacher.

A spokesperson at Mannion Middle School said they are not allowed to give out personal information regarding DeSilva’s new position at the school.

DeSilva’s case is still not closed. She is on a suspended 60-day jail sentence that will be dropped Oct. 4 as long as she has no other interaction with law enforcement.

Her plea deal also required her to forfeit her firearm and pay a $585 dollar fine; both of these stipulations have been met.
