Former Lowell Catholic School athletic director charged with sexually assaulting student – Boston News, Weather, Sports
LOWELL, MASS. (WHDH) – The former athletic director of a Roman Catholic school in Lowell is facing charges after police say he sexually assaulted a student in Pelham, New Hampshire last year.
James Parker, 24, turned himself into detectives under arrest warrant on Friday and was charged with two counts of criminal sexual contact with a child over 13 and a misdemeanor charge of interference with custody on sight in the state.
All charges stem from an incident that occurred Nov. 14, 2021, according to Pelham police.
The alleged victim said the relationship lasted a few weeks but denied any physical contact beyond kissing. In a police report obtained by 7NEWS, the girl admitted to “kissing Parker once in his office at school.”
At the time of the incident, Parker was an employee of the same educational institution as the victim, police said.
Parker is currently out on recognizance bail and is scheduled to appear in Hillsborough South Superior Court in Nashua, New Hampshire at a later date.
