Accused Pittsburgh School Police Officer To Resign
PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — A Pittsburgh School Police officer is planning to resign.
The Pittsburgh Public School Board is reportedly planning a meeting where School Police Officer Robert Lellock can turn in his resignation.
Last month, a former student came forward, accusing the officer of sexually assaulting him in a closet on the third floor of Arthur J. Rooney, Sr., Middle School in May of 1999.
The officer has been on suspension since the allegations came out against him.
Sources indicate several alleged victims have been taken to Rooney by police to take them through what happened at the school in the storage closet.
Lellock has not been charged criminally, however, the school district confirms he has resigned his position with the district.
Meanwhile, sources indicate Lellock will face criminal charges.
The district attorney’s office will pursue a possible criminal case against employees of the district for allegedly failing to report the alleged incidents.
