A former Federal Way elementary school teacher with a prior conviction for fondling a student was charged today with first-degree child molestation in a separate case.

Scott Michael Riley, 53, is accused of fondling a 10-year-old relative when the girl was 4 or 5, according to charging documents filed in King County Superior Court. The incident came to light after Riley admitted the fondling to a therapist, court papers said.

Riley was seeing a sexual deviancy therapist as part of treatment mandated after he pleaded guilty in 2007 to fourth-degree assault of a student. Riley, who fondled an 11-year-old girl in his music class at Twin Lakes Elementary School in Federal Way, received a one-year suspended sentence and two years of probation and was ordered to undergo the sexual-deviancy treatment.
