Charges Against Former School District
Employee Bound to Court

Charges against a former employee of the Bradford Area School District accused of having sex with a 16-year-old student have been bound to court.

25-year-old Stephen Schiappa is accused of having sex with the girl twice at his home. The allegations came to light when another student told a teacher she heard Schiappa was having sex with two students.

Schiappa told police he and the girl started working out together at the Y, they began talking and it eventually led to a sexual encounter. The girl told police they were in the hot tub at Schiappa’s home, and then went to his bedroom to have sex. She said “a period of time went by” before they had sex again.

Schiappa denied having sex with another girl, and said the encounter with the teenager was consensual, according to papers filed in District Judge Rich Luther's office.

Schiappa resigned as a general aide and assistant varsity baseball coach with the school district in February. He is charged with a misdemeanor count of corruption of minors and is free on bail.
