Brockton: Tutor charged in rape of 8-year-old girl

A Stonehill College student has been charged in the rape of an 8-year-old girl he tutored at a Brockton elementary school.

Twenty-one-year-old Kevin Treseler of Millis pleaded not guilty Tuesday to two counts of rape of a child with force and two counts of indecent assault and battery on a child under 14. A Brockton District Court judge ordered him held on $20,000 cash bail.

A spokeswoman for Plymouth District Attorney Timothy Cruz said Treseler is accused of sexually assaulting a third-grade student at the Angelo Elementary School while he was working as a tutor at the school.

Treseler was arrested by Brockton police Monday. A spokesman for Stonehill, based in Easton, said Treseler was suspended after his arrest.

Treseler’s lawyer, Kari Cincotta, did not immediately return a call seeking comment.
