INDIANAPOLIS — A former program director at the Sycamore School in Indianapolis is behind bars.

Christopher William Pollard is accused of having sex with a student in 2010, while he was a coach and a teacher at a high school in Hagerstown, Maryland.

Police in Hagerstown say a victim came forward last summer. According to court documents, most of the sexual conduct happened inside Pollard’s home, when his former wife was not there.

Because of the time gap, police say no forensic evidence exists. However, several statements from witnesses and former students gave police what they needed.

Pollard is now in the Marion County Jail, awaiting an extradition hearing.

In an emailed statement to families on Friday, Diane Borgmann, head of the school, said Pollard has been “released from Sycamore School’s employment and is no longer allowed on campus.”
