Hammondsport employee gets charged with felony offenses

HAMMONDSPORT--Following a police report by the Steuben County Sheriff's Office, Hammondsport Central School issued the following notice to residents, Monday, April 18.
"Hammondsport Central School was notified over the weekend that on Thursday, April 14, one of our cleaning employees, Jonathan Wells, was arrested in connection with an alleged inappropriate relationship with a minor. The alleged incidents did not occur on the school campus and, from what we know, are limited to one child. Mr. Wells faces serious charges and therefore a court order has been issued that he cannot be on school grounds or in contact with this child. Our school resource officer has been made aware of this restriction. The Steuben County Sheriff's Department and our local police are conducting a full investigation and will keep us informed if there is anything further we need to know as it pertains to the district. The district is in full cooperation with their investigation and we are currently conducting our own internal investigation as well. We strongly urge anyone with relevant information to report it to the police and Superintendent [Kyle] Bower immediately. As this is a criminal matter and an ongoing investigation, we will look to the Sheriff's Department to provide us and the community with any updates."
The original police report from the Sheriff's Office stated:
"Deputies and investigators of the Steuben County Sheriff's Office arrested Jonathan M. Wells, age 21, of Davis Avenue, Hammondsport, New York. It is alleged that Mr. Wells engaged in sexual acts and sexual intercourse with a person under the age of fifteen years. Mr. Wells was charged with rape in the second degree, criminal sexual act in the second degree, both class D Felonies, sexual abuse in the second degree and endangering the welfare of a child. Mr. Wells was arraigned in the Centralized Arraignment Court and released."
