Teacher accused of lewd acts waives preliminary hearing

A Franklin Regional teacher facing mulitple charges, including indecent exposure, waived his preliminary hearing Wednesday. Jeffrey Blahusch, 47, was arrested in June. He was caught on video allegedly touching himself on his back deck. Witnesses told police they had seen him do this on a frequent basis and decided to record it.

Police say they have four videos of the incidents, each taking place in the afternoon between 4-5 p.m.

Blahusch’s attorney, Mel Vatz, told WTAE, “This is something that happened in the privacy of Mr. Blahusch’s home. He intended no harm to anybody.”

WTAE reports Blahush is free on bond and remains on unpaid leave from Franklin Regional.
