Johnson City school district principal charged: What we know | #schoolsaftey

Johnson City Middle School’s principal has been charged with luring a child and attempted rape following an investigation into suspicious behavior involving a minor that attends Johnson City High School.

Broome County Sheriff’s Office detectives arrested Daniel Erickson, 55, of Greene, on July 7 and charged him with luring a child, a class E felony, and attempted rape in the third degree, Broome County Sheriff Fred Akshar announced Monday.

“As a father, I know this a nightmare scenario for any parent,” Akshar said. “We entrust our schools with the care and safety of our children, and to have an individual violate that trust, abuse their power and prey on a very students charged in our schools’ care is beyond disgusting.”

Officials said the investigation found that Erickson had been communicating via Snapchat with a 16-year-old female student, making statements and overt actions to indicate he was going to engage in sexual conduct with the minor.

Erickson agreed to meet with the student in a remote location with the intentions of engaging in sexual relations but detectives were at the location upon his arrival and he was taken into custody.
