RADNOR TOWNSHIP, Pa. (CBS) — A Main Line Catholic school teacher charged with disturbing crimes turned himself into police on Wednesday, as multiple sources confirm to CBS3 that parishes where Jeremy Triplett once worked are trying to determine if there were any accounts or allegations of inappropriate conduct. Triplett, a music teacher at Archbishop John Carroll High School, is accused of having a sexual relationship with a female student.
Detailed allegations against Triplett dropped Tuesday afternoon, claiming the music educator had sex with one of his students and provided an array of marijuana-laced edibles to students.READ MORE: Missing 6-Year-Old Sahara Little Found Safe, Stolen Vehicle Found In Checkers Parking Lot, Police Say
“He unlawfully had sexual contact with one of his students. I can’t imagine a more offensive situation,” said Delaware County District Attorney Katayoun Copeland. “How does a teacher engage in that kind of conduct with a child?”
