Police: York Tech teacher sexually assaulted another student
A York County School of Technology teacher accused last month of fondling a student is now accused of sexually assaulting another student at the school, according to charging documents filed Friday.
Kevin Eugene Nagle, 42, of McSherrystown, is charged with institutional sexual assault, indecent assault and corruption of minors, documents state.
On Friday, administrative director of York Tech David W. Thomas released a statement regarding Nagle's latest charges. In it, Thomas said Nagle is no longer employed by the school and was removed from teaching on Nov. 18, when allegations first emerged.
"The York County School of Technology reported the information it received to local police and made all mandatory reports and has continued to cooperate fully with the investigation of Mr. Nagle by law enforcement," the statement reads.
According to an online report from the school's joint operating committee dated Nov. 22, Nagle's resignation was accepted, and it became effective Jan 10.
The school urges anyone with information on Nagle to report it to York Area Regional Police.
In December, that department filed charges against Nagle, alleging he had sexually assaulted a 17-year-old boy in the storage room of the school store. The new charges allege he sexually assaulted another 17-year-old student in that same storage room, documents state.
New charges: On the day after Nagle was first charged, Dec. 20, another student reached out to authorities, police said.
The student told police Nagle had seen that the student's pants weren't fitting him correctly and talked to him about it, documents state.
Nagle then allegedly pulled the student's pants down below his knees and touched the teen's genital area with his hand while measuring him, police said. The teen was wearing boxers, and he and Nagle were the only ones in the room at the time, police said.
The incident allegedly happened Nov. 14, according to police.
In early January, the student was interviewed at the York County Child Advocacy Center, where he told authorities that incident happened roughly two weeks before Nagle left, according to police.
Police say on that day, the student had his pants down to his ankles, and at one point Nagle lifted the student's genitals to measure him. Additionally, the student told authorities that Nagle pulled the student's shirt up.
According to charging documents, Nagle cleaned the teen's genitals with what the student believed was hand sanitizer, using his hands and tissues.
The student said he was in the storage room from about 11:30 a.m. until 3 p.m. that day, police allege.
He told authorities that the next day he was back in the room from about 8 a.m. until about 11:30 a.m. with Nagle. Police say Nagle bought the teen five pairs of boxers and showed the student how to "tuck" his genitals properly. The teacher allegedly used his hand to show the student how to do so, according to police.
The teen said Nagle was asking inappropriate questions when that was happening, charging documents state.
Nagle was arraigned on the newest charges Friday morning at District Judge Scott Laird's office, where bail was set at $50,000. For his other charges, Nagle was released on $50,000 unsecured bail.
Previous charges: According to charging documents, on Nov. 18, a 17-year-old student reported to a school resource officer that he had been sexually assaulted by Nagle.
The student and his mother went to the school store about 3 p.m. Nov. 11 so he could buy a new shirt, documents state.
While there, he started speaking with Nagle, who in addition to teaching at the school also served as manager of the school store, police said.
Nagle ostensibly was helping the teen select a properly sized shirt, and the teen accompanied him to a storage room in the back of the store to try on a different size shirt, according to documents.
Nagle then asked the teen if he wanted to be sized for pants, police said.
"Nagle asked him if he was wearing underwear, and the victim said no," documents state.
He then asked the teen "if he could pull down his pants to get a better measurement with his tailors tape," documents allege.
The teen stepped back outside, at which point he, his mother and Nagle had a short conversation before the teen and Nagle returned to the storage room, according to police.
The allegations: Once in the storage room again, Nagle pulled down the teen's pants without asking and began to measure the teen's inseam, touching the teen's genitals in the process, documents allege.
"The victim stated Nagle asked him if he was cold or nervous and that he could talk to him, that they all had the same body parts," documents allege.
Police allege Nagle twice cupped the teen's penis and testicles while purportedly measuring the boy for pants, according to charging documents.
After about 30 minutes, the teen pulled up his pants, left the storage room and rejoined his mother, police said.
School security video showed the teen and Nagle were in the back room for about 25 minutes, documents state.
York Area Regional Police Detective Donald E. Hopple Jr. wrote in charging documents that he called Nagle on Nov. 21 to ask about the allegations.
"He told me that he was on the other line with his attorney and was not to come and talk to me," Hopple wrote.
He was arraigned on those charges Dec. 19, according to online court records.
'About the instructor': Gettysburg-based attorney Steve Rice, who is listed as Nagle's attorney, did not immediately respond to a message seeking comment.
Nagle's "about the instructor" page on the technology school's website has been removed.
However, Google cached a version of the page, which reads:
"When I am not busy teaching my classes at YCST, I teach graduate classes for Wilkes University and enjoy spending time with my family. I am an avid computer user and am constantly looking at new and different information."
Online court records indicate Nagle's bail was set at $50,000. A prison official confirmed Saturday that Nagle posted the bail at central booking.
His preliminary hearing on both sets of charges is scheduled for 1:30 p.m. Feb. 7 at Judge Laird's office.
