HAMTRAMCK, Mich. (WXYZ) — Ibrahim Aljahim worked for four years as a community liaison officer in the Oakwood International Academy in Hamtramck until he was accused of First Degree Criminal Sexual Conduct involving an 18-year-old special needs student.

In the first day of a preliminary examination, the testimony shows this started out with a video going around school of the student exposing his private parts.

Police were called and talked with the student who was described as withdrawn.

Then this turned into a more serious case.

The student was examined at Henry Ford Hospital. Officer Anthony Gonzalez testified along with an aunt of the victim we are not identifying.

Aljahim is well known in Metro Detroit political and social circles. His case stunned many when it surfaced in September. He worked as a volunteer in the Wayne County Sheriff’s Office.

The hearing is set to continue on November 21st. If convicted, Aljahim is facing up to life in prison.
