BLOOMSBURG — Newswatch 16 has learned that a former teacher in Columbia County is facing indecent assault and other charges.

Gary Beveridge was charged in April for allegedly molesting a student in his class at Columbia-Montour Area Vocational Technical School.

He has since been let go from his job at the school in Bloomsburg

According to court papers, Beveridge had indecent contact with a 17-year- old student on several occasions from October 2013 until March 2014.

The school district said Beveridge worked as a secondary English teacher at the school for 24 years. They fired him April 2014 when the charges were filed and that went into effect in May of 2014.

A former student we spoke with says he remembers Beveridge as a good teacher, and he was shocked to hear the allegations because Beveridge was always a teacher that students looked up to.

    That must be a very old photo of Beveridge, the ones that have been in the Bloomsburg paper for the past few months show a much older version of this person.

    Wow. Another one. Real surprise. It’s an everyday occurrence anymore. Reading about teachers or priests molesting kids or politicians or judges getting caught cheating the law or stealing or scandals , is like morning coffee. It’s routine in pennsyltuckey

    • Innocent til PROVEN Guilty

      I hope they find Gary Beveridge innocent AND if they do I hope the news stations take it upon themselves to smear his innocence all over the TV like they did his to date unproven guilt.
