According to CBS Philly, Seth Jason Reich, a Pennsylvania Leadership Charter School teacher, has been accused of sexual assault, unlawful contact with a minor, and corruption of minors.
The investigation began following a report of multiple instances from a former student in Reich's acting class who was 17 at the time.
A document released by the Chester County DA confirms the former student, who is now 19 years old, reported the incidents to authorities in great detail. According to the report, Reich and the victim allegedly exchanged phone numbers to discuss the school play. Following these discussions, the victim claims they would have lunch together, and the text messages soon became flirtatious.
The victim claims that in May 2019, Seth Reich told the underaged student to wear a skirt to his office, and the two allegedly kissed for the first time that day and eventually had sexual intercourse.
By June 2019, the student had left the school and stopped being Mr. Reich's student. Although, according to the complaint, the two continued their relationship until March 2021.
During a meeting with authorities, the victim called Seth Jason Reich to confront him about their relationship. Authorities confirm that Seth Jason Reich admitted to the relationship with his 17-year-old student.
