A physical education teacher with the Seneca Falls School District was arrested Thursday on charges of sexual abuse following the investigation into alleged incidents that occurred at a town of Ovid residence in November and December of 2016.
Guy Bowers is accused of subjecting a 15 year old to sexual contact and activity on multiple dates during that two month time frame. Bowers has been charged with two counts of endangering the welfare of a child, forcible touching and sexual abuse. He was released following his arraignment and an order of protection has been issued.
In a statement, Superintendent Robert McKeveny said the alleged situation did not involve a district student. Bowers has been placed on administrative leave and is not allowed on school grounds at this time.
Bowers is listed as a Physical Education teacher at the Elizabeth Cady and Frank Knight schools.
