CCSD moves to fire janitor with criminal past

Clark County School District moved Wednesday to dismiss Michael P. Curley, the Valley High School janitor who the Review-Journal found had pleaded guilty in June to two counts of gross misdemeanor conspiracy to commit stalking.

Curley was a district employee at the time of his arrest and conviction. District regulation requires employees to report all criminal arrests, charges and convictions to the district in writing within 48 hours. Failure to do so can result in disciplinary action, including termination.

District spokeswoman Melinda Malone said the district is in the process of dismissing Curley.

The district hired Curley in June 2013. Six months later he was arrested for the same behavior that caused previous employer North Las Vegas to fire him: threatening to kill city employees and their families.

In one instance, according to court filings, he threatened to shoot his boss’s children in the kneecaps.

After being fired over threats of violence, city employees continued to receive death threats from Curley for four years, according to a North Las Vegas police report. Curley is not allowed to contact city employees or go to City Hall.

Curley worked for North Las Vegas from 1996 to 2009. He cleaned sewers for the city before being fired.
