WATERLOO, Iowa (AP) — A judge has dismissed exploitation charges against a former Waterloo teacher accused of engaging in inappropriate behavior with students.

The Waterloo-Cedar Falls Courier reports a short trial this week for 56-year-old Larry Twigg concluded Thursday after Judge James Coil ruled that the alleged actions did not amount to a criminal offense. He dismissed one charge Wednesday and another Thursday.

The charges were in connection with Twigg's conduct with a student in 2009. Coil ruled, among other issues, that the 18-year-old had graduated school.

Twigg was convicted in May of five misdemeanor counts of lascivious conduct with a minor in a separate case. Prosecutors say he coerced a 17-year-old student to do several bizarre acts in 2009 and 2010. He has appealed the conviction and is currently free on bond.
