Full Story:An elementary school teacher in Kentucky allegedly made repeated sexual advances toward a female student he called “baby” and demanded hugs from girls in his class, according to a report.
Stephen Loder, who resigned in September 2018 from Newport Intermediate School after just two months, was named in a civil lawsuit filed in July that claims he sexually harassed and assaulted the girl by touching her backside and pressing his groin against her back, the Cincinnatti Enquirer reports.
Loder, who taught sixth grade at the school, allegedly demanded displays of affection from female students and placed their faces near his groin during those embraces. Loder also frequently referred to his genitals during his class, the suit claims.
Loder, who has not been criminally charged, could not be reached for comment on Monday. He declined through a relative to respond to the allegations when reached by the Enquirer.
