Teacher allegedly touched student

BELFAST — A teacher from Livingston County was arrested Monday and charged with inappropriately touching children, state police said.

Alex T. Minnick, 33, of Retsof, was charged with two counts of misdemeanor forcible touching and three counts of endangering the welfare of a child.

State police said a complaint was filed Nov. 1 that Minnick, an art teacher at Belfast Central School, had inappropriately touched a minor.

An investigation confirmed that and also found that Minnick had made inappropriate comments “while in a professional capacity,” troopers said.

Minnick was issued appearance tickets and released to appear at a later date in Belfast Town Court.
