Brockton: Teacher charged with raping student

A Brockton High School teacher is being held on $20,000 bail after pleading not guilty to charges that he raped a teenage female student.

The Plymouth County District Attorney’s office said 57-year-old Joaquim Andrade was arraigned Friday on a variety of charges, including rape of a child with force, enticement of a child, indecent assault and battery on a child over 14.

Prosecutors allege that the assault occurred on October 7 in Brockton, but not on school property.

A Brockton District Court judge ordered Andrade to have no contact with the alleged victim.

Brockton School Superintendent Kathleen Smith says Andrade was placed on leave immediately after the allegations surfaced, and high school parents were told about the investigation.
