FRAMINGHAM, Mass. (MyFoxBoston.com) – A Weymouth middle school teacher accused of exposing himself to two young girls inside the Framingham Barnes and Noble on Feb. 13 was arraigned on Monday.
Brian Kennedy, 34, of Dorchester, pleaded not guilty to a charge of open and gross lewdness.
Kennedy, a teacher at the Chapman Middle School, was ordered to not have contact with children 18-years-old or younger. He was also ordered to not contact the 12 and 13-year-old victims and to not go to Barnes and Noble.
Kennedy must not drink alcohol and must submit to random alcohol screenings. He is scheduled to return to court for a pretrial hearing on April 25.
According to Weymouth Public Schools Superintendent Kenneth Salim, Kennedy has been placed on unpaid administrative leave. The school is in the process of notifying parents via telephone.
Kennedy was hired in January 2003 as a para-professional/teaching assistant. He works with another lead teacher, not alone with students.
Kennedy told police he has publicly exposed himself several times before, according to the MetroWest Daily News. He said it even happened at a Kohl's in Avon.
There is no Kohl's in Avon, but there is one in Stoughton. Last year, police were looking to identify a man who exposed himself to a teenage girl at that Kohl's store, the newspaper reported. It was not immediately clear whether police ever made an arrest.
