Trial begins for RCSD physical education teacher charged with sex abuse

Created: 10/21/2013 6:47 AM WHEC.com

The trial of a physical education teacher in the Rochester City School District, accused of sexually abusing a student, will begin Monday.

Investigators say 36-year-old Matthew Lomaglio inappropriately touched a boy under the age of 11. We are told the incident happened at School No. 19 on Seward Street during the 2006-2007 school year.

Lomaglio is facing a bench trial so a judge, not a jury, will decide the outcome.

Since the investigation started in April 2012, school officials say Lomaglio has been assigned to desk work at a building behind School No. 16 on Post Avenue.

District leaders say he does not have contact with students.
