Two teachers from the same school district are being accused of having sex with students, some as young as in the first grade, officials said.
One of the suspects is currently a pastor at a church as well.
Randy Boston, 63, of Shickshinny, Pennsylvania, was arrested after the West Goshen Township Police Department investigated a report of sexual assault involving a minor that was a decade old.
The incident reportedly involved a first-grade student at West Chester Christian School, in which the victim was sexually assaulted while Boston was a teacher at the school in 2008.
Police spoke to a 21-year old victim who claimed they were sexually abused by a teacher when in first grade, according to the Chester County District Attorney's Office.
The victim told authorities they were abused as many as three times during the 2007-2008 school year, and recalled one incident in the gym before school started in the morning when he stuck his tongue out at another student.
Boston, who was monitoring the students, reportedly saw the encounter and ordered the victim to follow him to the gym’s basement, according to prosecutors. Boston reportedly took the victim to a room, where he shut the door and told the child to remove his belt and pull his pants down.
The defendant performed oral sex on the victim before telling the victim to perform oral sex on him, prosecutors said.
