Papers filed in Penfield Town Court confirm that Kevin Markman, 41, is accused of kicking, throwing, shoving and grabbing three children under 17 to the point where they "feared for themselves and each other." The alleged incidents happened at Markman's home in Penfield.
The victims are known to Markman, but are not students at the Charter school.
We are still awaiting a statement from the The Rochester Academy Charter School regarding these charges and how they could affect Kevin Markman's job as Dean of the school.
Markman's attorney, Larry Kasperek,says his client denies the charges and will fight them in court to "restore his good name and reputation." Markman will appear in Penfield Town Court tonight.
Markman is also a licensed social worker. The State Education Department, which oversees licensing for social workers and other professionals, tells us, it is aware of the arrest and is investigating.
