English Teacher Accused in Flashing
A 44-year-old English teacher at a residential treatment center who is accused of flashing the owner of a jewelry store had his bail reduced in court today and was ordered to stay away from the victim.
Flashing suspect David Roach, a Peekskill resident who was reassigned to administrative duty at the Phoenix Academy of Westchester in Yorktown until his case is settled, said nothing during the brief appearance in Village Court this morning.
Roach is accused of opening his pants and fondling himself in a Main Street shop on Friday. He was charged with public lewdness, a misdemeanor.
Outside court today, the suspect's lawyer said that police were denying Roach the right to an unbiased hearing by releasing details of his arrest.
In court, Village Justice Kyle McGovern reduced the suspect's bail from $1,000 cash to $500.
In addition to barring Roach from going near the store, the judge ordered Roach to stay away from the store owner.
"If you violate this order, I will remand you to the county jail and set bail at an extraordinary amount," the judge said. "Do you understand?"
Roach nodded that he did.
He is due back in Village Court on Oct. 17.
