Doctor facing sexual assault charges who formerly worked for MASD has court date scheduled

Posted

William Vollmar, the Lancaster County doctor who worked as a contracted physician for Middletown and several other school districts, has an Aug. 9 date in Lancaster County Court to face multiple sexual assault charges.

Vollmar, 55, of Willow Street, was ordered bound over on all charges during a preliminary hearing Thursday before Lancaster County District Judge Stuart J. Mylin, according to online court records.

Charges were filed  in April and in May, based on six victims coming forward to say Vollmar sexually assaulted them while he was treating them for sports injuries, according to Pennsylvania Attorney General Josh Shapiro.

Charges include sexual assault, school-intercourse/sexual contact with student, corruption of minors, unlawful contact with minor-sexual offenses, and indecent assault.

Some of the alleged offenses date back to 1997. Others occurred in 2015; others took place as recently as March, according to online court records.

Vollmar was the contracted school physician for Middletown Area School District from the 2013-14 school year until April 11, when Vollmar resigned one day after being arrested by State Police and charged with indecent assault.

None of the victims who have come forward have been from the Middletown district.

Superintendent Lori Suski has said that the district is unaware of any alleged improper conduct directed at students during his time working for the district.

Suski has urged any past or present Middletown students who have alleged inappropriate conduct regarding Vollmar to call State Police at 717-290-1965.
