A former Dallastown Area Middle School teacher is free on $50,000 bail, accused of sexually molesting one of his students over a four-year period, starting when she was 13 years old, police said.

Christopher John Boyer, 28, of Red Lion, is charged with institutional sexual assault, aggravated indecent assault, indecent assault, corruption of a minor, sexual abuse of children, possession of child pornography, unlawful contact with a minor.

York Area Regional Police said Boyer was a seventh-grade math teacher at the middle school when he began a sexual relationship with the girl.

Charging documents allege the contact between Boyer and the girl consisted of touching, fondling, kissing and digital penetration.

He was arraigned Wednesday morning by District Judge Scott Laird, according to court records.

Boyer could not be reached for comment. His Harrisburg-based attorney, Robert Daniels Jr., was not immediately available for comment.

Phone seized: That’s when lead investigator Officer Michael Zinn Jr. asked to see the phone.

“Boyer declined to allow me to view his cellular telephone,” Zinn wrote in charging documents, and also said he’d thrown away his personal computer two days prior to the interview.

But Zinn already had a warrant to seize the phone and home computer, which he did, documents state.

A forensic examination found a photo of a female lifting her shirt and exposing her bare stomach and bra-covered chest, which had been taken in a school bathroom, police allege.

The girl later confirmed it was a photo she’d taken of herself with Boyer’s phone.

Left district: Boyer’s employment with the school district ended at the end of the 2012-13 school year, according to police.

Dallastown Area School Superintendent Ron Dyer declined comment, and declined to say whether Boyer resigned or was terminated.
