Ritchie High teacher charged with sexual abuse and assault

HARRISVILLE, W.Va. — A special education teacher at Ritchie County High School is facing sexual assault and abuse charges involving a student.

State Police arrested David P. Weekley, 43, of Pennsboro on Wednesday and charged him with second degree sexual assault, first degree sexual abuse and two counts of sexual abuse by a parent or custodian.

Earlier this month, troopers said a male student at Ritchie County High School alleged he’d been abused in a closet of the school last December and in an unoccupied room of the school this month.

Weekley was able to post $100,000 bond after his arraignment Wednesday in Ritchie County Magistrate Court.
