Trial set for ex-Pittsburgh school cop sex charges

PITTSBURGH (AP) — Jury selection is set to begin for a former Pittsburgh Public Schools police officer who is charged with molesting four boys more than a decade ago.

Forty-four-year-old Robert Lellock has denied charges that he pulled male students out of class so he could molest them in a supply closet.

Lellock and the district are being sued by some of the alleged victims, who claim district officials failed to properly respond if their teachers reported the incidents.

Lellock was suspended then resigned after the allegations surfaced last year.

The allegations involve boys who were 13 and 14 and students at Arthur J. Rooney Middle School in the city’s Brighton Heights neighborhood in the late 1990s.
