Cop: Suspended Pa. teacher offered grade for sex

Posted: Updated:

WEST SUNBURY, Pa. (AP) - A suspended western Pennsylvania high school English teacher has been jailed on charges he sent sexually-charged text messages to five students, and fondled or had sexual contact with some of the girls, including one whose grade he promised to improve in exchange for a sex act.

The attorney for 26-year-old Jonathan Crum, of Slippery Rock, didn't immediately return a call Tuesday on charges filed Monday by state police. Crum was jailed unable to post $100,000 bail.

Police say the contact took place at Moniteau High School about 35 miles north of Pittsburgh since 2009.

Police believe there may be other victims in the case and say they filed the charges after interviewing the current and former students last month.

School officials say they're cooperating with the investigation. Crum faces a preliminary hearing May 23.

    A special visit from President Trump attracted thousands to downtown Youngstown Tuesday, though not as many as initially expected. Early estimates based on online reservations through the Trump campaign projected nearly 20,000 people headed to the city, but realistically, fewer than 10,000 filled the Covelli Centre and its outdoor overflow viewing area. Despite the increase in traffic and crowds downtown, Youngstown Police said there were no major issues throughout the day.  S...More >>
