A Montgomery County teacher is accused of sexually assaulting a student.
Melissa Bonkoski of Stowe, Pennsylvania was arrested and charged with three counts of institutional sex assault as well as other offenses after she allegedly sexually assaulted a student on December 1, 2015.
Bonkoski taught Earth Science at Owen J. Roberts High School in Pottstown. While officials say her victim is a student, they did not reveal whether the victim attends Owen J. Roberts or if the assault took place at the school.
Bonkoski was arrested Thursday but is currently free on $80,000 bail according to court documents. Her preliminary hearing is set for August 17. She also resigned from her teaching position at Owen J. Roberts.
