PEN: Pennsylvania teacher convicted of rape faces 20 years in prison

A Pennsylvania teacher who allegedly raped a 14-year-old student during an after-school program in 2013 is facing up to 20 years behind bars.

According to the Philadelphia Inquirer, the state attorney general’s office on Tuesday announced the charges against Kaleb St. Germain, who was arrested in May of this year.

St. Germer is accused of forcibly having sex with the girl on a field in front of her classmates, then taking photos of the encounter.

He faces 20 counts of aggravated sexual assault, three counts of lewd and lascivious acts with a child under 16 and one count of second-degree criminal sexual conduct.

The state is seeking the maximum sentence of 20 years.

The school district says it has since terminated St. Germain’s contract and the district will review the decision.
