Mass. high school teacher arrested on charges of alleged sexual misconduct
By Benjamin Smith Globe CorrespondentA Narragansett Regional High School teacher was arrested at his home in Worcester Friday on charges of sexual misconduct with students, according to a press release from Templeton Police Chief Michael Bennett.
The teacher, identified as Matthew Kacavich, allegedly had inappropriate contact with a current and former student, according to the release.
The investigation began on Aug. 4 when the Templeton Police Department’s School Resource Officer received potentially incriminating information about Kacavich, according to Bennett.
Templeton Police then conducted an interview with one of Kacavich’s former students, with whom Kacavich allegedly had a relationship, according to the release. During the interview, police learned that Kacavich may have had inappropriate contact with a second student during the previous school year, according to Bennett.
Kacavich is being held on $2,500 bail on charges including trafficking of a person under 18 for sexual servitude, according to Bennett.
