Maryland Catholic School Teacher Charged with Sex Abuse

July 17, 2015

Police say a teacher at a girls' Catholic school in Potomac has been charged with sexually abusing two teenage students.

Montgomery County police say 40-year-old Justin Gordon was arrested Thursday.

Gordon was a robotics teacher at Connelly School of the Holy Child. He also provided technical support at the school. Police say he was fired after administrators became aware of the allegations.

Police say a teenage girl came forward this week and reported that Gordon had developed a personal relationship with her over many months and then began molesting her. Police say they found that Gordon did the same thing to another girl, befriending her in 2008 before abusing her in 2012.

Gordon is being held on $35,000 bond. No attorney is listed for him in online court records.
