WILMINGTON, Del. (AP) — Delaware State Police say a former high school teacher was arrested in connection with the rape of a former student.
James Berman was charged with continuous sexual abuse of a child, eight counts of fourth-degree rape and two counts of second-degree unlawful sexual contact.
He taught at Delcastle Technical High School in Wilmington.
The 48-year-old was taken into custody at his home Wednesday and released on $124,000 secured bond.
State police determined that the teacher had a sexual relationship with a juvenile student that began in October 2009 and lasted for over a year.
He hasn’t been an employee of the school district since 2014.
