Trial for Larry Twigg Will Stay in Black Hawk County

WATERLOO, IA (AP) -- Trial for a former Waterloo teacher charged with lascivious conduct with one of his students will remain in Black Hawk County.
   A judge on Thursday rejected 55-year-old Larry David Twigg's request to move his second trial out of Waterloo because of pretrial publicity.
   Twigg was a Waterloo West High School computer teacher before he was convicted in 2011 of five counts of lascivious conduct toward a minor. Last year, the Iowa Court of Appeals ordered a new trial, saying jurors shouldn't have heard about alleged prior incidents.
   Twigg says his actions -- which included having the student make up missed assignments by participating in bizarre activities while in his boxers -- weren't sexually motivated.
   Twigg's new trial has been set for May 21.
