Credentials revoked for teacher accused of sexual assault
CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — New Hampshire’s commissioner of education says he’s revoked the credentials of a teacher accused of sexually assaulting a former middle school student in Massachusetts.
Commissioner Frank Edelblut says former Concord High School teacher Primo “Howie” Leung voluntarily surrendered his teaching credentials as part of an agreement with the education department. Leung’s prohibited from working in any school in New Hampshire or in any other state.
In Massachusetts, Leung’s charged with two counts of aggravated rape of a child; one count of indecent assault and battery on a child under the age of 14; and one count of indecent assault and battery on a person over the age of 14. He’s pleaded not guilty.
Leung, who’s out of jail on bail and living in Massachusetts, is scheduled for an appearance in Middlesex Superior Court on Nov. 6.
