HARRISBURG, April 9, 2014 — State Sen. Anthony H. Williams, Delaware County District Attorney Jack Whelan and Darby Township Police Chief Len McDevitt will discuss the recent case of a Darby Township elementary school teacher who allegedly sexually abused eight girls.

The list of charges against the 2nd grade teacher, Paul Hochschwender, grew last week when the eighth student stepped forward to claim he fondled her while attending Darby Township School.

Sen. Williams has proposed legislation to address the way school districts “pass the trash” and hide allegations of educator sexual misconduct. Senate Bill 46 has won unanimous, bipartisan support at every stage of the legislative process. Should it become law, cases like Darby Township’s would be prevented.

Media coverage is encouraged.
