Pittsburgh police have obtained a warrant for a Pittsburgh Perry High School teacher accused of fondling a 15-year-old student last fall.
The female student told detectives that Michael White, 29, of Homewood South, grabbed her breasts and buttocks during the school year about 10 times, according to a Pittsburgh police affidavit.
The student told police that Mr. White boasted about having three houses, money and cars, and that he invited her to his house on several occasions and offered to drive her, according to the affidavit.
She said she refused.
Asked by investigators if Mr. White had ever brushed against her inappropriately by accident, the student said no. The contact remained on the outside of her clothing, she told detectives.
Mr. White is facing charges of unlawful contact with a minor, corruption of minors and indecent assault.
KDKA-TV is reporting that he is on paid leave, according to Pittsburgh Public Schools, which became aware of the accusations in December.
