The investigation determined the man was not the alleged victim’s teacher at the time of the alleged incidents, which is required by law due to the age of the female.
“There was a thorough investigation by the Middletown Police Department who brought to bear all the legal issues. The facts developed showed that the teacher did not have a direct supervisory relationship with the student that is necessary for a criminal charge as required,” Gmoser said.
