A St. Louis teacher - who is reportedly HIV positive - has been accused of molesting one of his students and then conspiring with his boyfriend to put a hit out on the alleged victim and his family. More inside...

This is a whole new level of EVIL.

A St. Louis teacher with HIV has been accused of taking a student out of his class and molesting him. Three years later, police say the teacher tried to hire a hitman to kill the child he allegedly molested and his family.

According to KSDK, Deonte Taylor, 36, and his accomplice/boyfriend Michael Johnson, 66, both pleaded not guilty to several charges during their court appearance this week.

It's alleged Taylor, who reportedly has HIV, was working as a teacher's aide at Lusher Elementary in 2015 when he molested a 7-year-old student. Police allege he took the student out of his classroom into another classroom to sexually assault him. At the time, charges weren't filed even though the child reported the assault and it's unclear why. After the boy reported the incident again, Taylor was arrested and brought up on charges in November 2018 after his DNA matched samples found on the student, who is now 10-years-old.

Months after his arrest, while he was still behind bars awaiting trial, police say Taylor and his boyfriend Michael Johnson tried to hire a hitman to kill the young boy and his mother.

PEOPLE reports:

In Nov. 2018, Taylor was charged with three counts of first-degree statutory sodomy with a child, according to court records.

The documents allege Taylor asked someone identified only as “C.I.” to murder the boy and asked Johnson to pay C.I., which Johnson did.

After the alleged incident(s) in 2015, Taylor went on to get other teaching jobs. He was reportedly fired from the Hazelwood School District in 2015 for an unrelated policy violation following the abuse allegation.

After Taylor was fired by Hazelwood - but before he was charged - he ended up nabbing a job in Ferguson-Florissant School District at Walnut Grove Elementary school where he reportedly taught fifth grade. KSDK questioned the district about its vetting process to find out how a man who was accused of molesting a child was able to work in the school district. The district claims since Taylor was never arrested or charged following the 2015 incident, he passed a mandatory background check.

"Mr. Taylor went through the same process that all of our teaching candidates go through. Everyone goes through a criminal background check, sexual abuse registry background check and there was nothing that showed up on that," said Kevin Hampton, district spokesperson for the Ferguson-Florissant School District.

Come to find out, Taylor was also still being paid by the Ferguson-Florissant School District while he was in jail:

KSDK: "So he was behind bars, accused of molesting a student and he's still getting a paycheck from the district?"

District spokesperson Kevin Hampton: "Everybody receives due process, and he had an opportunity to have due process when those initial charges were filed. When the subsequent charges were filed, it became clear that he was not going to be returning and at that time, he was terminated."

Taylor reportedly faces felony sodomy charges. Both he and his boyfriend face conspiracy to commit murder and witness tampering charges.

The alleged victim and his family have started a GoFundMe to help recoup some of the expenses they've had over the last three years. You can donate here.

We're living in a really cruel and crooked world. Keep your babies safe.
