High school teacher accused of sexually assaulting students

June 27, 2019

ALLENTOWN, Pa. (AP) — Prosecutors say a former high school teacher sexually assaulted more than six students over a decade, creating an “assembly line” of victims.

The (Allentown) Morning Call says 39-year-old Christian Willman is charged with multiple counts of sexual assault and criminal solicitation by a sports official, institutional sexual assault, sexual abuse of children and corruption of minors.

He taught at Parkland High School in Allentown from 2001 to 2011, then at Palisades High School in Bucks County from 2011 until 2018.

Willman’s attorney, Matthew Sedacca, declined to comment to the Morning Call.

Bucks County District Attorney Matt Weintraub says Willman engaged his female students and student-athletes first in sexually charged text messages, then moving on to physical contact.

Weintraub is urging other victims to come forward.
