Fietek was the school's theater director from 2005 to 2019. A former male student, who is now an adult living in Utah, made the allegations in a Facebook post, saying that the alleged assault took place approximately nine years ago, and it did not occur on school grounds.

Fietek was teaching arts at Emerson College in Boston until last month, but the college said he is no longer working there at this time. They did not reveal if he was fired or if he quit.
