Teacher arrested for assaulting 11-year-old girl

(ANSA) – ROME, 5 October – Police in Caltanissetta on Wednesday arrested a secondary school teacher on suspicion of repeatedly sexually abusing an 11-year-old schoolgirl, local sources said.
A man who worked in a public school was placed under house arrest.
The alleged victim mustered up the courage to report to another teacher, who reported to the vice principal at the end of June, but took no action.
The girl then told her parents who immediately informed the local squadron.
Over the course of several days, police gathered evidence from the girl’s classmates, who told her account of the alleged abuse, as well as the man’s questionable behavior and sexist remarks in class.
He was accused of cursing his students and making inappropriate remarks about their appearance.
The alleged victim was then interrogated by a Preliminary Investigation Judge (GIP) in the presence of a psychologist.
A deputy principal who took no action on a teacher’s report has been cited as not reporting the crime. (ANSA).
