William Wesley Baldwin IV

A former math teacher at a public charter school in Lancaster city accused of having sex with a 17-year-old girl is no longer allowed to teach in Pennsylvania.

William Wesley Baldwin IV, 41, of Millersburg, Dauphin County, had his teaching certificate revoked by the state Department of Education last month, records show.

Baldwin was convicted of a misdemeanor count of corruption of minors and sentenced to two months of probation on April 18.

He was accused of having sexual contact with the girl in June and July last year, according to a criminal complaint from state police. She was a 10th-grade student of Baldwin’s when he taught at Millersburg Area High School in Millersburg in the 2013-14 school year.

The complaint states that on at least two occasions he took the girl to La Academia Partnership Charter School, 30 N. Ann St., where he made sexual advances on her while they were alone in his classroom.

Baldwin was arrested at La Academia on Oct. 7, 2015, state police previously reported. The school terminated him the day of his arrest.

Police and the Dauphin County district attorney’s office decided not to file more serious charges “due to the consensual nature of the sexual relationship,” the complaint states.
