ALLENTOWN, Pa. - January 23, 2013 (WPVI) -- A substitute teacher in the Allentown School District has been charged with sexually assaulting a 9-year-old boy in an elementary school bathroom.
Michael J. Agrippine, 47, of Main Street in Coopersburg, Pa. was arrested Wednesday.
He has been charged with aggravated indecent assault, institutional sexual assault, and indecent assault.
Prosecutors say the boy told them Agrippine assaulted him Friday in a basement-level bathroom at the Union Terrace Elementary School in Allentown.

School officials say Agrippine has worked as a substitute teacher with the district for a year and has taught at two or three schools.
