CRESSON, Pa. (AP) — A central Pennsylvania teacher has resigned and been charged with corruption of minors after a student told police he saw a 16-year-old female student kissing the teacher.

Thirty-one-year-old Carl Newfield, of Cresson, did not immediately return a call for comment Wednesday and online criminal records don’t list an attorney for him.

Cresson police charged Newfield after a 14-year-old boy reported seeing the girl sitting with her legs draped on Newfield in a dressing room following a musical rehearsal at Penn Cambria High School on March 16. Police say the girl told them she kissed Newfield—who she called her “best friend”—but that he didn’t return the kiss. Police say the girl didn’t want Newfield to get in trouble or lose his job.

Newfield was the musical director at the school, where officials say he has resigned.
