Baltimore Jewish day school teacher arrested on child abuse charges

(JTA) — A physical education teacher at a Baltimore Jewish high school was arrested and charged with child abuse.

Foye Minton, 33, was arrested last week by Baltimore County Police at the Day School at Baltimore Hebrew, where he works.

Minton is accused of having a sexual relationship with a female student for four years at the Shoshana S. Cardin School, where Minton previously worked as dean of students and athletic director.

The student, who said the abuse started in 2009, is now 20. She approached police in December, and they conducted an investigation that culminated in Minton’s arrest, the Baltimore Sun reported.

According to the Baltimore Jewish Times, the student told police that Minton attempted to contact her on several occasions after she ended the relationship.

Baltimore Hebrew sent a letter to parents last week informing them of the arrest and said the school is “not aware of any incidents or complaints in connection to this teacher while teaching at the Day School,” the Baltimore Jewish Times reported.
