WEST CHESTER, PA — The Chester County District Attorney’s Office announced that Alexander Boitsov, age 68, was sentenced to 57-114 months in prison for the sexual abuse of a 15-year old student at The International Ballet Theater in East Whiteland Township, where Boitsov was a ballet instructor. The victim came forward in 2017 after two years of abuse.

Chester County District Attorney Deb Ryan said, “Despite the position of power the defendant was in, this young victim had the fortitude to speak up about his horrific abuse. I commend him for his strength.”

In January 2020, a jury found Boitsov guilty of ten counts of Indecent Assault, one count of Indecent Assault of a Minor, and numerous other charges.

East Whiteland Township Detective Patricia Doyle investigated. Chester County Deputy District Attorney Erin O’Brien prosecuted the case.
