PHILADELPHIA (KYW Newsradio) — A music teacher at Archbishop John Carroll High School has been charged with institutional sexual assault and related crimes and has been placed on administrative leave. 

Delaware County District Attorney Kat Copeland and Radnor Police Superintendent Christopher Flanagan says 30-year-old Jeremiah Triplett of Dresher had indecent contact with a female student and gave THC-laced edibles to some students.

The DA and police say Triplett will surrender to law enforcement officials tomorrow before a district magistrate at 11 a.m. Wednesday.

Police say Triplett gave THC-laced brownies and Nutella crackers, and THC-laced gummy bears and alcohol to two students. Police also allege Triplett kissed one of the students and groped her. 

In a statement, Ken Gavin, spokesman for the Archdiocese of Philadelphia, says Triplett was placed on administrative leave on March 26.
