Suspended teacher charged with stalking student

A suspended Penn-Trafford High School teacher is accused of stalking a 17-year-old student by trying to meet the student at his workplace and repeatedly inviting him to events and restaurants.

After trading messages online with Spanish teacher Michael David Garet and meeting the teacher during down times at school for a few months, the student decided Garet’s attention was more than that of a concerned friend. That caused him to worry about his safety, according to a criminal complaint by Penn Township police.

School Resource Officer David Meyers charged Garet, 31, of Level Green on Thursday with stalking, harassment and disorderly conduct for incidents from Nov. 23 to Feb. 1. Harrison City District Judge Helen Kistler scheduled a Sept. 9 preliminary hearing for Garet, who will receive the charges by mail.
