SOMERSWORTH, N.H. — A former Somersworth math teacher has been charged with assault after he was accused of hugging and kissing a student.

Paul Blanc, 40, was arrested Wednesday and charged with three counts of simple assault. Police said the former Somersworth High School teacher hugged a student, kissed her on the neck and then kissed her on the hand.

Police said the incident happened at the high school on Jan. 27. Blanc resigned earlier this month while the investigation was underway.

The charges are misdemeanors that could each result in up to one year in jail and fines.

Blanc was released on personal recognizance bail and is scheduled to be arraigned on March 6.
