A former Ohio gym teacher has been accused of molesting more than two dozen first-grade girls, a prosecutor said Monday. John Austin Hopkins was indicted on 36 counts of gross sexual imposition after being captured more than a times on school surveillance tapes with his hands up the skirts or shirts of the girls, or with them straddling his lap, Warren County Prosecutor David Fornshell alleges. The footage that allegedly implicated Hopkins was on surveillance video from the Clearcreek Elementary School gymnasium between December and March And while the alleged abuse happened in front of the class, the little girls did not realize they were being taken advantage of, Fornshell said. Hopkins, who was arrested Monday and is awaiting arraignment, was charged after a grand jury returned an indictment on 36 touching incidents involving 28 first-grade girls, Fornshell said.
