Jury: Iowa Man Guilty of Inappropriate Conduct
WATERLOO, Iowa (AP) - A former Waterloo teacher has been found guilty of engaging in inappropriate behavior with a student.
The Waterloo-Cedar Falls Courier reports a Black Hawk County jury took less than two hours Friday to determine 55-year-old Larry Twigg was guilty of five counts of lascivious acts with a minor.
The jury needed to determine if Twigg's actions were sexual when he coerced a 17-year-old student to do several bizarre acts in 2009 and 2010 to make up for missed class assignments.
The student testified that Twigg, a former computer teacher at Waterloo West High School, spanked him and forced him to play strip video games.
Twigg was convicted in 2011, but an appeals court ordered a new trial over whether a jury was improperly influenced by other students' testimony.
