Rape Charges Dropped Against Kevin Treseler, Stonehill College Student

Charges were dropped against Kevin Treseler, a Stonehill college student accused in March of raping an 8-year-old girl he was tutoring.

A grand jury did not indict Treseler after a hearing.

The Enterprise News has more:

The grand jury’s decision means the charges against Treseler, 21, of Millis, will not be prosecuted in court, said Bridget Norton Middleton, a spokesman for Plymouth County District Attorney Timothy J. Cruz.


Grand jury proceedings are secret and no reason was given for the failure to indict, Middleton said. Grand juries decide whether there is enough evidence to charge someone with a crime.

Treseler was accused of raping a student he was tutoring as part of a federally subsidized work-study program. Treseler plead not guilty to the charges. He was suspended from Stonehill after the charges were announced.
