Former Green Bay School District teacher charged with sexual assault


GREEN BAY — A former Green Bay School District teacher has been charged with two counts of sexual assault, accused of fondling an 11-year-old girl during violin lessons.

Kelton Jennings, 26, is charged with repeated acts of sexual assault of a child and first-degree sexual assault of a child under 13, according to a criminal complaint filed Tuesday in County Circuit Court. Brown.

Jennings was charged Jan. 28 with engaging in inappropriate behavior with students and placed on administrative leave. When a second allegation followed on March 1, he quit his teaching job at Beaumont Elementary School on the southwest side of Green Bay. He taught instrumental music to fifth graders at Beaumont, Danz, Eisenhower, Elmore, Jackson, Kennedy and MacArthur elementary schools, according to the school district.

Jennings engaged in repeated sexual touching while teaching between Oct. 1 and Feb. 21 at the school, the complaint states. Green Bay detectives said a second child told them a similar story about events that happened during violin lessons at school.

The girl claims she was shot in the chest, above her clothes, the criminal complaint states. The students discussed the alleged behavior in casual conversations with each other, the complaint states.

Jennings has been free on $10,000 bond since March 7.
