A former assistant drama coach at Green Middle School has been charged with several felony counts including attempted sexual battery after being found in a parked car with a partially clothed 14-year-old girl.
Inspector Bill Holland with the Summit County Sheriff’s Office tells Fox 8 News that Jason Mazan, 27, of Canton was indicted on Tuesday afternoon on charges of attempted sexual battery, attempted unlawful sexual conduct with a minor, and falsification, related to a April 7, 2012 incident.
Around 1:30 a.m., a Summit County Sheriff’s Patrol Deputy noticed a vehicle parked behind a business on Massillon Road.
After walking up to the car, the deputy found Mazan inside the car with the teen.
Mazan was fired by the Green Local Schools after the district learned of his arrest.
Mazan worked briefly as a substitute teacher last year at Green High School.
Prior to his arrest, he was a part-time assistant drama coach in the middle school, according to Superintendent Michael Nutter.
