A former physical education teacher accused of inappropriately touching dozens of first-grade girls in incidents captured on school surveillance video has been indicted on charges of gross sexual imposition in Ohio.
Warren County Prosecutor David Fornshell says 25-year-old John Hopkins, of Springboro, was indicted Monday on 36 counts involving 28 girls.
The article goes on to state the following:
Authorities allege the misconduct, such as putting his hands up girls’ shirts or skirts, occurred while Hopkins was a physical education teacher at Clearcreek Elementary School in Springboro.
Fornshell says authorities identified 88 first-graders who had some physical interaction with Hopkins, and a grand jury found 36 incidents merited criminal charges.
At the time of the incidents, Hopkins was employed by the Springboro Community City Schools as a physical education teacher at Clearcreek Elementary and Springboro Intermediate.
