A Chicago Public Schools teacher has been charged with multiple felonies accusing him of sexually abusing a 14-year-old girl, according to Skokie Police and the school district.
A judge on Tuesday ordered Jason P. Gil, 42, of the 3000 block of North Kostner Avenue, held without bail on charges including criminal sexual assault, solicitation of child pornography, solicitation to meet a child and grooming.
Gil is listed on a CPS employee roster as a part-time bilingual teacher at Waters Elementary School on the Northwest Side. He was removed from his position pending investigation, according to a statement from CPS.
The district’s Office of the Inspector General is also investigating, CPS said.
Skokie police began investigating on Saturday after the girl reported she had been abused by Gil, who was a teacher at the school she attended in Chicago, according to a release from the Skokie Police Department. The alleged abuse happened in Skokie, according to police. The department did not disclose the school.
Gil was arrested Sunday and appeared in court for a bond hearing Tuesday. He is due back in court Wednesday for a bond review.
Gil was reported missing over the weekend, according to an alert from the Chicago Police Department.
A Chicago police spokesperson did not have further information about the missing persons report or how Gil had been taken into custody.
