Northeast Elementary Kindergarten Teacher arrested on sex charges

November 22nd, 2019 by WCBC Radio

On 11/22/2019 members of the Allegany County Combined Criminal Investigation Unit (C3I), with assistance from the Allegany County Sheriff's Office, arrested 36 year old Cole Derek Green after a warrant had been issued for his arrest for two counts of sexual abuse of a minor.


            On 11/12/2019 the Allegany County Department of Social Services – Child Protective Services received a complaint that Green, a kindergarten teacher at Northeast Elementary School, had been touching students in an inappropriate manner. A joint investigation was initiated at that time by Child Protective Services, the Allegany County Board of Education, and C3I.


            Through interviews, C3I Investigators learned that an adult witness had observed Green, on two separate occasions while in the classroom, place his hands under the clothing of two different female kindergarten students and touch them in a sexual manner, thinking that he could not be seen while doing so.


            Child Protective Services conducted precautionary interviews of every student in the class. None of the other students disclosed that they had been touched by Green in an inappropriate manner.


            Green was immediately placed on administrative leave by the Board of Education when the allegations were first learned, and has been out of the classroom and school since that time.


            At the time of the arrest C3I Investigators executed a search warrant at Green's residence in Lonaconing. Numerous electronic communication devices were seized at that time, to be examined for evidence related to the crimes. In addition, C3I Investigators also served a search warrant on Green's classroom in order to seize additional electronic communication devices for examination.


            Green is facing charges of Sexual Abuse of a Minor, 4th Degree Sex Offense by a Person in Position of Authority, and related charges, for each victim. He was taken before a District Court Commissioner, and is currently being held without bond at the Allegany County Detention Center, pending his next court appearance


            The investigation is continuing.

    And what’s his punishment? I’m sure like the last teacher at my ridge high he will get off with probation and a smack on the hand. Send him to prison so he can feel what its like to be his victims and get a taste of his own medicine. Prayers for his victims who will forever be affected by his actions.

    He’ll likely threaten his victim and never be on trial and then abuse other women
