A former JROTC instructor at a high school in Montgomery County has been arrested for alleged sexual misconduct with a student, police and school officials announced Tuesday.
Mark Miller, 45, of Glenmoore, Chester County, was charged with three counts of institutional sexual assault, according to the Towamencin Township Police Department.
Miller was hired in 2013 by North Penn High School to be a military science instructor for the Air Force JROTC Program. He served in that role until he submitted his letter of resignation on Dec. 15, 2016, the same day school officials learned from students about his alleged sexual misconduct and contacted authorities.
The school issued a statement about the charges against Miller:
"Charges such as these against Miller are contrary to the core values that educators hold true and will never be tolerated in the North Penn School District. As always, North Penn High School has the staff and resources in place for students who may need extra support during this time. Student safety is a top priority of the North Penn School District. Students are commended for reporting and acting upon this serious issue."
Miller was arraigned and released on $50,000 unsecured bail.
