Teacher Accused Of Raping Teenage Student

SALTSBURG, Pa. (November 1, 2013) Todd McCullough, 28, a Pennsylvania high school shop teacher, is accused of raping a 16-year-old student at school, and state police say the investigation of the incident is ongoing because it began with a complaint from another student about unwanted attention from the teacher.

That complaint surfaced last week, but police say McCullough, of Kiski Township, Pa., raped the Saltsburg High School student in April 2012.

McCullough doesn't have an attorney and declined to comment after his arraignment Thursday on rape and related charges.

He remains in jail pending a preliminary hearing Nov. 13.

The school district says it's been cooperating with police since an internal investigation determined the employee violated state law and district policies.

Trooper John Matchik says police consider the investigation "intense and ongoing."
