Detectives from the Montgomery County Police Department- Special Victims Investigations Division have arrested Robert Otis Wilson III, age 23, of Silver Spring, for having inappropriate contact with a 13 year-old female student (who turned 14 years old during the span of the offenses) while he worked as a paraeducator at A. Mario Loiederman Middle School. Wilson has been charged with one count of sex abuse of a minor and three counts of a third degree sex offense. The inappropriate contact occurred during the approximate time period of October 2014 to March 2015 and most of the inappropriate contact occurred on school grounds.
Earlier this month, the Special Victims Investigations Division began an investigation into sexual offenses committed by Wilson that involved the minor victim. Detectives determined that the victim and Wilson would meet at least once a day on school grounds during the time period of October 2014 to March 2015, during or after school. On one occasion in January of 2015, the contact occurred at the victim’s residence; Wilson had gone to the victim’s residence and texted her that he wanted to see her.
At the end of March, Wilson left his role as paraeducator at the school and the contact between the victim and Wilson ended.
During a police interview, Wilson admitted to having inappropriate contact with the victim.
Wilson was arrested at approximately 9:00 last night at a restaurant in the White Oak area and was transported to the Central Processing Unit. He is currently being held on bond and will have bond review today in District Court.
Investigators are asking that anyone who believes he/she was a victim of inappropriate contact with Wilson to please call the Special Victims Investigations Division at 240-773-5409. It should be noted that Wilson also worked as an assistant track coach at Wheaton High School during the last two years.

On April 20, Mid – Atlantic Association of Women in Law Enforcement (MAAWLE) presented Montgomery County Police Officer Carrie Glascock with the Trooper Jessica Chaney Spirit Award. The award is presented to a law enforcement professional with five (5) years or less of service, who has excelled during her short tenure and embodies the spirit of Trooper Jessica Cheney.
Officer Glascock, who is currently assigned to the 3rd District, was presented the award during MAAWLE’s annual conference in Ocean City, Maryland. Although her career with Montgomery County Police has just started, Officer Glascock has already made an impact on the community she serves. While still in field training, she fingerprinted several stolen vehicles, identifying suspects tied to multiple auto-theft cases. She completed several search warrants related to a prostitution and drug case, leading to a network of drug trafficking and prostitution. Her efforts help build a solid case against a career criminal.
Due to her hard work, in April 2014 Officer Glascock was awarded the Officer of the Month in the 3rd District. She is trained as a shift evidence technican enabling her to help process various kinds of crime scenes. Sergeant Brian Parker, Officer Glascock’s supervisor, stated in the nomination paperwork, “There is no doubt she exhibits the best qualities of a law enforcement professional and every member of the public is safer because of it.”
