Court Records: former Princeton HS teacher facing child seduction charges

GIBSON CO., Ind. (WFIE) - An Arrest warrant has been issued for a former Princeton Community High School teacher.

44-year-old Gary Kinswa is facing attempted child seduction and theft charges.

Princeton police tell us the school officials told them about Kinswa because his emails to that student were flagged due to the inappropriate comments.

Our media partner, the Princeton Daily Clarion, reports a 16-year-old girl told police that Kinswa emailed and texted her for several weeks. In one text, police say, Kinswa requested photos of her in her underwear.

According to a probable cause affidavit, the girl came forward because she heard he was sending inappropriate messages and pictures to other female students. Police say she didn’t want them to have to go through the same experience.

Police say the girl provided screenshots of some of the messages.

Kinswa is also being accused of stealing more than a thousand dollars from the school’s prom account.

“He was in charge of a post-prom account, during the course of cleaning out everything the receipts were coming back negative so they brought in a separate auditor, and it did turn out there were in proper use of those funds," Chief of Police Derek McGraw said.

According to the Clarion, Kinswa’s teaching contracted was terminated this week.
