Editor’s note: This is a bad week for role models with a local police officer charged with retail theft and a teacher charged with molesting a child. Very upsetting!
Jared P. Leimeister, of North Coventry, posted bail and was released from the Chester County Prison on Monday.
The 33-year-old teacher was also charged with endangering the welfare of a child, corruption of minors and indecent assault of a person less than 13 years old after police spoke with an 8-year-old girl who spent time with Leimeister between October 2012 and February 2013.
Leimeister is listed as an eighth-grade science teacher, according to the school district’s website.
