Philip Chism, aged 25, who was pre­vi­ous­ly con­vict­ed for the rape and mur­der of Mass­a­chu­setts high school teacher Colleen Ritzer in 2013, has plead­ed guilty to addi­tion­al charges involv­ing a bru­tal assault on a Depart­ment of Youth Ser­vices (DYS) worker.

Chism was just 14 years old when he com­mit­ted the hor­rif­ic acts against his alge­bra teacher at Dan­vers High School, lead­ing to a 40-year prison sen­tence in 2016. 

Now, Chism faces fur­ther legal con­se­quences after admit­ting to attack­ing a female clin­i­cian at the Met­ro­pol­i­tan Deten­tion Cen­ter in Dorch­ester on June 2, 2014, when he was 15.

Pros­e­cu­tors described how Chism fol­lowed the vic­tim into a bath­room area, where he choked, beat, and attacked her with a sharp­ened pen­cil, result­ing in seri­ous injuries. Chism respond­ed with “That is cor­rect, your hon­or” when asked by the judge if he was admit­ting to the facts pre­sent­ed in court.

While the vic­tim was not present dur­ing the hear­ing, she referred to Chism as a “mon­ster” in an impact state­ment read by the pros­e­cu­tor on her behalf.

Colleen Ritzer, known for her pas­sion for teach­ing and love of life, has been hon­ored through the estab­lish­ment of the Colleen Ritzer Memo­r­i­al Fund, which pro­vides grants and schol­ar­ships to future educators.
