Waterloo West High School Teacher Arrested


By Aaron Hepker

WATERLOO (AP) - Authorities in Waterloo say they have arrested a West High School teacher who was suspended last week during an investigation of alleged sexual misconduct.

Police charged Larry Twigg, 52, with five counts of lascivious acts with a minor Tuesday. He was taken to the Black Hawk County Jail and later released on bond.

Capt. Tim Pillick of the Waterloo Police says the misdemeanor charges stem from incidents involving the same minor, a 17-year-old male student.

The charges state that Twigg was in a position of authority over the student and persuaded him to partially disrobe for the purpose of arousing or satisfying his sexual desire.

Twigg is a computer teacher at West High. He was placed on administrative leave for alleged inappropriate behavior with a student.
