(North Port, Florida) A 48-year-old teacher's aide with the Sarasota School District, Sally D. Clarke, has been accused of child molestation.

The alleged abuse occurred within Clarke's home when the 9-year-old male victim stayed with her.Details on booking are unavailable.
North Port Police spokesman Capt. Anthony Sirianni said the victim was a relative of Clarke, and that the alleged abuse had nothing to do with her employment for the school district.
