Jordan Henderson, a 34-year-old Evergreen Elementary School teacher accused of sexually assaulting children, appeared before a judge on Friday.

Henderson is accused of 9 counts of molestation, 3 of which were his own students.

The Pierce County Sheriff’s Department (PCSD) launched the investigation after receiving a report from a youngster on Feb. 26 alleging inappropriate behavior by a teacher at school.

Detectives from the sheriff’s office acted quickly, launched an investigation into the situation.

During the ongoing investigation, the school system took swift action by removing the accused teacher from his position at Longbranch Elementary School.

On Apr. 18, after a search warrant was executed at Henderson’s home in Gig Harbor, the suspect was arrested on first-degree charges and placed into Pierce County Jail.

The charges against Henderson have caused shock waves throughout the community, particularly among the victims’ families.

In a highly emotional court hearing Friday, parents described the deep impact of the alleged assaults on their children, with one girl pleading with the judge to keep her suspected attacker in jail.

On Friday, the courtroom was packed with members of Wellspring Fellowship Church, where Henderson and his father both serve as leaders.

The church issued a statement expressing support for Henderson, adding to the case’s complexity.

Despite Henderson’s attorney’s appeals for release without bail, Pierce County Superior Court Judge Barbara McCinvale set a $100,000 bond and imposed strict conditions, including a prohibition on Henderson’s contact with children other than his own.

The Peninsula School District, where Henderson worked, has stayed silent on the topic, providing no information on his present employment position.

As the investigation and legal proceedings continue, the community grapples with the troubling claims leveled against a once-trusted member of the community.
