Yee Tak Sharon Kui, age 25, of the 100 block of Pasture Side Place in Rockville, was a teacher at The Frost School.  The Frost School is a private special education school which serves children and adolescents with emotional and behavioral disabilities, autism spectrum disorders and related special needs.  Investigation revealed that twice in November, while the victim's parents were out of the house, the defendant went to the victim's residence in Silver Spring and engaged the victim in illegal sexual contact.

An arrest warrant was obtained charging Kui with 2 counts of Third Degree Sex Offense, Sex Abuse of a Minor, and Sexual Solicitation of a Minor.  Further investigation conducted with the United States Department of Homeland Security has revealed that the defendant has fled to Hong Kong to avoid prosecution.
