ROCHESTER — A former Old Colony Regional Vocational Technical High School teacher is accused of raping at least one student at the school.

Andre Arsenault was arrested and arraigned Tuesday on charges regarding interactions with a student that began when she was 14 years old, the student said in a police report obtained by WCVB.

Arsenault previously worked as a culinary arts teacher at Old Colony.

He is no longer employed by the school district, according to Old Colony. The school did not comment further.

Based on the police report, the student said Arsenault “was groping her almost every day at school” and that “she was raped during her senior year,” according to WCVB.

Several of Arsenault’s neighbors were reached for comment on Wednesday. All who answered their doors declined to comment. 

As of March 13, records regarding the case at Wareham District Court have been impounded by the Plymouth County District Attorney’s Office. A probable cause hearing is scheduled for April 26, according to the Plymouth County District Attorney’s Office.
