BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Source: Boca PD) — On Friday, February 10, 2017, Boca Raton Police officers responded to Somerset Academy, 333 SW 4th Avenue after being called by the principal. The principal told officers there was at least one incident involving a teacher, Brian Kornbluth, and a student.
The principal explained that a teacher told him of unusual requests by Kornbluth to have certain students moved so they could attend his class. All classrooms have video surveillance and the principal immediately had the camera in Kornbluth’s classroom repositioned so it faced the teacher’s desk. The video showed that on Thursday, February 9 at about 7:25 a.m., a student was with Kornbluth in his empty classroom and during this encounter, Kornbluth briefly kissed the student on the lips.
After viewing the video, the officer notified Boca Raton Police Detectives, who continued the investigation. The student participated in a forensic interview with the Child Protection Team. The Child Protection Team also interviewed the student’s sister, and she said that Kornbluth also kissed her one time while she was at the school the previous year.
Kornbluth spoke with detectives and admitted to kissing the student but denied kissing the student’s sister. Detectives arrested Kornbluth and charged him with two counts of simple battery.
