HERKIMER — A former substitute teaching assistant at Herkimer BOCES is accused of using his cell phone to send inappropriate pictures and text messages to a 16-year-old student last year, state police said Monday.

Nicholas Stovall, 20, of South Main Street, Herkimer, is charged with endangering the welfare of a child, a misdemeanor, after information surfaced regarding images sent in the spring of the last school year, troopers said.

Further investigation of the juvenile girl's cell phone prompted state police investigators to bring more charges against Stovall in Herkimer Town Court.

When questioned Monday, state police Investigator William Keiffer declined to identify what additional charge or charges have been filed, or whether they are more serious than the misdemeanor charge Stovall faces. All of the charges were brought in late 2009.

Because Stovall has not yet been formally arraigned on the newer charges, Keiffer said he did not think it was appropriate to comment on any new charges or allegations at this time.

“The reason we charged him with one thing and then brought the additional charges was because there was more work that needed to be done with the cell phone until we were comfortable,” Keiffer said.“Obviously, we want to confirm certain things before we go charging people with something.”

At the time of the initial charge, Stovall was employed by BOCES on an as-needed basis, said Mark Vivacqua, a district superintendent of the Herkimer BOCES. He was removed administratively from the substitute list immediately and formally removed by the Board of Education.

BOCES has not yet been provided with all the specifics of the charges and so can only offer limited comment, Vivacqua said.

“The New York State Police were called in as soon as BOCES learned of the original allegations against Mr. Stovall,” Vivacqua said.“The BOCES co-operated fully with the police investigation.”

Stovall's attorney, Keith Bowers, could not be reached for comment Monday morning.

Neither Herkimer County District Attorney John Crandall, nor the prosecutor handling the case, could be reached Monday as well. Because it was President's Day, government offices were closed.

Stovall was believed to have been a substitute teacher working at the Herkimer BOCES building on Gros Boulevard in spring 2009 when he reportedly became acquainted with the underage student, Keiffer said. Stovall would have been 19 at the time.

That's when the alleged pictures and text messages were sent, Keiffer said. The improper communications reportedly continued into the summer, police said.

Investigators do not have any information to suggest the student likewise sent any inappropriate images to Stovall in return, or that Stovall had any inappropriate physical contact with the girl, Keiffer said.

The allegations were first reported to police by a third party, Keiffer said. Once the girl was questioned and Herkimer BOCES was made aware of the allegations, the girl then cooperated with the state police investigation.

He made a poor decision. The only reason he was charged is because he subbed for BOCES. Just think how many college kids send innappropriate text messages to their high school friends every day.

technology doesn't make people stupid, it just allows those who are already stupid an easy outlet to showcase their stupidity.

BOCES is no better than any other school. Subs are interviewed by a secretary and then approved by the board. It's a joke. Like every school, they have some excellent teachers that get burned out with all the administrative bs that comes down.
The big wigs get the money and run, leaving the little people to carry the crap. Whoever turned this person in will probably lose their job for doing the right thing!

Not sure where or if you've even gone to school but a sub is considered a teacher. A teacher is a person of power and authority and have no business banging out the students no matter what age they are.
Technology just enhances the stupidity of the stupid individual it hasn't made anyone stupid they were already down that road
