DAVENPORT, Iowa (AP) — A Davenport high school teacher and coach accused of sexually abusing a student has resigned his two posts.
Daniel Schneiderman’s resignations were accepted by the school board on Monday night. He had been head basketball coach and a special education teacher at North High School.
Schneiderman, 37, is charged with sexual abuse by forcible fondling, sexual exploitation by a school employee and telephone dissemination of obscene material to a minor. He has pleaded not guilty.
Police say Schneiderman kissed, held down and fondled a 14-year-old student in January 2011. Police say he also exchanged sexually explicit text messages with the girl and groped and made sexually explicit comments to her during school.
