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.
