GREENCASTLE, Pa. - Pennsylvania State Police have filed charges against a former Greencastle-Antrim School District employee, stemming from an alleged relationship he had with a 15-year-old student.

Nicholas Alan Shew, 20, of Shady Grove, Pa., has been charged with statutory sexual assault, involuntary deviate sexual intercourse, aggravated indecent assault and corruption of minors, according to court documents filed in Magisterial District Judge Duane Cunningham's office in Greencastle, Pa.

Court documents allege the relationship began in 2005, with Shew allegedly sneaking into the girl's house, where they had physical relations.


The two reportedly met at church in February or March 2005, records state.

"She continued to have contact with him through church, phone conversations (and) text messages," the investigating officer wrote in the affidavit of probable cause.

Police said the two first kissed in November 2005 ... "in the hallway at school," the affidavit states.

The physical relationship continued in December and the beginning of January 2006, including one day when she stayed home from school, police said.

State police said a trooper contacted Shew and "learned he was at his 'girlfriend's house.'" That trooper also was informed of the girl's age.

Shew has been released from Franklin County Prison on $30,000 bond.

Mandatory arraignment has been scheduled for March 8 in Franklin County Court.
