N. Arizona teacher accused of kissing student

KINGMAN, Ariz. — A Kingman High School teacher has been arrested on a
misdemeanor assault charge for allegedly kissing a male student two years ago
during a drama class.

Mohave County Sheriff’s officials say 32-year-old Harry Thomas Schueren was
arrested Wednesday. They say the charge doesn’t involve allegations of sexual
intent.

A student recently reported the incident.

Sheriff’s spokeswoman Trish Carter says Schueren denied he intentionally kissed
the now 17-year-old senior. He contends they were involved in a heated up-close
discussion when he turned his head and the two accidentally touched lips. The
boy insisted it was intentional.

A 17-year-old girl also complained Schueren kissed her this summer, but a
witness didn’t corroborate it and Schueren denied it.

There’s no phone listing for Schueren. A call to the district wasn’t
immediately returned Thursday.
