Ritchie County teacher arrested again

PENNSBORO, W.Va. — State Police Troopers arrested a Ritchie County High School teacher for a second time this week Friday on an additional charge for allegedly sexually abusing a student.

Troopers said David P. Weekley, 43, of Pennsboro, was charged with second degree sexual assault and first degree sexual abuse after a second student came forward Thursday. The student alleges an incident that occurred in May 2013.

Weekley was arrested for the first time Wednesday after another student reported to State Police on Feb. 7 that Weekley had performed oral sex on him in a closet at the school in December 2013. The boy also alleges Weekley fondled him in an unoccupied room at the school.

Weekley was charged with second degree sexual assault, first degree sexual abuse, and two counts of sexual abuse by a parent/custodian. He posted $100,000 bail on the original charges.
