Catasauqua teacher accused of sexually assaulting teen

 

CATASAUQUA, Pa. - A Catasauqua School District teacher accused of sexually assaulting a teenager is headed to trial.

Kimberly Race, 42, waived a preliminary hearing Thursday.

She was charged with statutory sex assault and corruption of minors.

Race is accused of sexually assaulting a 15-year-old multiple times at her home in July and August 2018. The victim had been a student in one of her classes several years prior to the alleged assaults, authorities said, but there are no allegations of abuse while he was her student.

Race has since been suspended from her position with the school district.

Race's formal arraignment is scheduled for Nov. 12.
