Posted: January 24, 2013

A substitute teacher has been charged with sexually assaulting a 9-year-old special-education student in a bathroom at Union Terrace Elementary School in Allentown, Lehigh County District Attorney Jim Martin said.

Michael James Agrippine, 47, of Upper Saucon Township, was charged with aggravated indecent assault, institutional sexual assault, and indecent assault.

According to the arrest affidavit, filed Wednesday, Agrippine acknowledged being in a bathroom stall with the victim, a boy, caressing him from behind, and penetrating him with a finger.

Martin said the incident allegedly took place Friday but was not reported until Sunday, when the boy told his mother of the assault and she called Lehigh County Children and Youth Services. - Allentown Morning Call
