Mark Dobbins was a gym teacher and rugby coach of Chestnut Academy and a suspect in the rape of Holly Purcell.
Mark had a previous arrest by an intoxicated police officer in Erie County for having sex with a teenage prostitute who lied about her age. The charge was subsequently dismissed, but no school would hire Mark since. As a result, he had to forge a document to get a teaching/coaching job at Chestnut Academy in Manhattan.
The rape charge against Mark was dismissed after Holly recanted her accusations. Although his name was cleared, Mark was dismissed from Chestnut Academy, not because of the case, but for forging the document. He and his wife are currently living with his in-laws in Upstate New York.
