A teacher in the Seneca Falls Central School District is accused of sexually abusing a teen over the course of two months.

Deputies have arrested Guy Bowers, age 59, on charges of endangering the welfare of a child, forcible touching and sexual abuse.

Deputies say Bowers “subjected a 15-year-old victim to sexual contact and activity” between November and December in 2016.

According to the district’s website, Bowers is a physical education teacher at Elizabeth Cady Stanton School and Frank Knight Elementary. The district says a robocall was sent out after the arrest.

He was arraigned on the charges in Town of Ovid Court and later released. An order of protection is in place for the victim.
