A Hockessin dance instructor who admitted to inappropriately touching a 17-year-old Dover student in 2017 has been found guilty of child sex-abuse offenses in Pennsylvania.
Alexander Boitsov, a former principal with major companies in Russia, was found guilty on Friday of 14 charges he inappropriately touched a boy at a Frazer, Pennsylvania, ballet studio. The crime occurred over a two-year period.
A sentencing date has not been set.
The Pennsylvania charges were filed as the 67-year-old man prepared for his Delaware trial that he inappropriately touched a Dover juvenile in 2017.
Boitsov had been an instructor at the Dance Conservatory, at 522 Otis Drive in Dover, when he took the then-17-year-old boy into a locker room on June 23, 2017, and told the boy to undress.
That's when Boitsov engaged in sexual contact with the boy.
Boitsov was arrested on June 28 of that year in New York City's Ellison Ballet school where he was a guest teacher.
Boitsov pleaded guilty to one count of second-degree unlawful sexual contact in May 2018 and was sentenced to three months in prison, and to have no contact with anyone under the age of 18 – except for supervised visits with his grandchildren.
He's also had to register as a moderate risk sex offender.
