More Child Sex Abuse Charges Filed Against Chesco Piano Teacher
By Brad Segall
EAST PIKELAND TOWNSHIP, Pa. (CBS) — The criminal case against a Chester County music teacher continues to grow, with more children coming forward to tell authorities they were shown sexually explicit photos by the man.
The new charges against Anton Fomin, 44, include endangering the welfare of children.
After last week’s media exposure, three more alleged victims came forward and told police that, while they were Fomin’s students, he showed them pictures of nude children and adults.
Fomin worked at the Malvern School of Music, and he and his wife ran a private music school.
Chester County first assistant DA Michael Noone says there may still be more victims out there.
“We encourage parents to have that difficult conversation with their children,” he tells KYW Newsradio, “and if there are other victims out there, that they come forward to the police.”
The East Pikeland man was arrested last week and charged with sexually abusing three children (see previous story). He remains behind bars, in lieu of $300,000 cash bail, awaiting his preliminary hearing.
