North Rose-Wolcott Teacher Accused of Sexual Abuse


A teacher in the North Rose-Wolcott school district has been arrested on a sex abuse charge.

33-year-old Anthony Gill of Rochester is accused of subjecting a student to sexual contact and inappropriately touching the student while teaching in the middle school.

Gill was charged with sexual abuse and endangering the welfare of a child and was released on an appearance ticket.

The school district released the following statement on Wednesday:

“The North Rose-Wolcott Central School District has learned of the arrest of former probationary middle school teacher Anthony Gill. Mr. Gill was immediately placed on administrative leave in March 2023 when the District first learned of student concerns. He did not thereafter return to his position. Upon learning of student concerns, law enforcement was immediately contacted and involved, parents of students interviewed were contacted and the District completed and promptly filed with the New York State Education Department the mandatory moral character report and report of child abuse in an educational setting.  Mr. Gill’s employment was terminated in March 2023, following the District’s investigation and within days of the District’s first learning of concerns related to Mr. Gill. The District is steadfast in taking all actions to keep students safe.

Mr. Gill was in his second year with the district. A background check and employment screening are required prior to hiring. His screening included a search of the New York State Sex Offender Registry. That screening came through with approval from the State Education Department.

Individuals with additional information are asked to contact Chief Deputy Croft of the Wayne County Sheriff’s Office at 315-946-5783.”
