York Suburban teacher had sex with student, police say


A York Suburban High School teacher is charged after police say he had sex with a student.

Michael S. Coy, 41, of York, was charged Monday with felony counts of institutional sexual assault, corruption of minors, and unlawful contact with a minor.

Coy is accused of having sex with a 17-year-old girl in June 2018, according to charging documents filed by Spring Garden Township police.

In an interview with police in February, the girl said the sex did not occur at the high school but at a location in Spring Garden Township. She said she exchanged text messages with Coy and the two set up times to meet, and at least one of those meetings resulted in sexual intercourse.

Police examined the girl’s phone and found text messages with Coy that began in April 2018 and ended in June. The conversations turned sexual in nature in June and referenced an engaged contact between Coy and the student, police said in the criminal complaint.

Coy sent the teen at least one non-sexual photograph of himself, police said.

Coy was arraigned before a district judge who set bail at $25,000. He was released after posting a bond, according to court records.

A preliminary hearing is scheduled for April 25.
