50-year-old John Williamson, an instructor at Norfolk County Agricultural High School in Walpole, Massachusetts was arrested after he allegedly raped an 8-year-old boy in his garage apartment on July 10th. He taught in the schoolâ€™s Plant Environmental and Machinery Department where he met the victimâ€™s mother, a fellow employee.
Williamson moved into the womanâ€™s garage apartment after the death of her husband in 2009 and he has helped to take care of her children.
The child told his mother about the assault after she heard him swearing and asked where he got it from. He accused the teacher of raping him five times in one day. The mother then reported the matter to the police and after an investigation he was arrested on Friday, July 17th.
Williamson was charged with indecent assault and battery on a child with two counts of rape. His bail was set at $10,000 cash with the condition that he must be placed on GPS monitoring and cannot have contact,Â work or volunteer with anyone under the age of 18.
He is scheduled to appear in court next month.
