Former Powell Middle School teacher accused of abusing student in 1990s

A former Littleton Public Schools teacher has been arrested on suspicion that he repeatedly sexually assaulted a student between 1996 and 1998.

Michael Camelio, 70, was arrested at his home in Highlands Ranch by the Arapahoe County Sheriff’s Office on Feb. 28, after a woman reported the alleged abuse.

A news release from the sheriff’s office said Camelio was a teacher at Powell Middle School at the time of the incidents. He was arrested on suspicion of five counts of sexual assault on a child by one in a position of trust after an investigation.

Camelio taught at Powell from 1995 to 2002. Prior to that, he was director of education and principal at Mark Hopkins Elementary School from 1982-88 and a computer science teacher at Newton Middle School from 1988 to 1995. After leaving LPS, he taught at Regis University. His LinkedIn profile says he left Regis in 2012 and has been working as a marketing consultant since then.

According to the 18th Judicial District docket, he will appear in court for a preliminary hearing on April 5. He is being held in Arapahoe County jail on $10,000 bond.

Anyone with additional information about the suspect or the alleged crime is asked to contact Investigator Melinda Schubert at 720-874-4042.
