A science teacher at Salamanca Central School has pleaded not guilty to having sexual contact with an underage girl.
40-year-old Shane Riethmiller of Dunkirk is charged with one count of promoting sexual performance by a child, 8 counts of disseminating indecent material to a child and one count of sexual abuse.
The grand jury indictment says the incidents happened between September and December of 2011 with a girl who is younger than 17.
Although earlier reports said Riethmiller allegedly received nude photos of an underage girl on his cell phone and sent nude photos of himself back to her, a news release from the district attorney’s office on Tuesday says the sexual contact happened without the girl’s consent.
At the time of Riethmiller’s arrest sheriff’s deputies said the name, age and address of the child will not be released.
The case has been adjourned for motions.
