Palm Beach County, FL (January 25, 2019) – On Thursday, the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office announced the arrest of the 54-year-old headmaster of Matlock Academy now identified as Randy Konsker. He is accused of having sex with a minor. He is now facing sexual assault charges as police continue to search for other victims.
Police say that Konsker had inappropriate contact with victims who were minors at the time of the incidents.
The state, however, believes that Konsker is a danger to the community because of his actions taking place against children. He has been ordered to have no contact with any minors under the age of 18 except for his two teenage sons.
At this time, detectives believe that there could be many victims. Konsker has been charged with 10 counts unlawful sexual contact with a minor, unlawful sexual battery with a minor and two counts of lewd and lascivious behavior on a victim aged 12 to 16.
Konsker was arrested on Thursday and his parents appeared in court to request the court that he be allowed to reside at their home on house arrest. This morning, Konsker was denied bond. The investigation into the matter continues.
