Twigg Found Guilty Again
BLACK HAWK COUNTY (CBS 2/FOX 28) - Former Waterloo teacher Larry Twigg is found guilty of all five criminal counts against him, but now faces new charges.
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. As well as, pouring chocolate sauce on him and making him make snow angels while in his underwear.
Twigg was convicted in 2011, but an appeals court ordered a new trial over whether a jury was improperly influenced by other students' testimony.
Twigg blamed the behavior on a head injury from a car crash.
After his conviction, Twigg was arrested on new charges, after a student told police about incidents in 2009.
He faces a felony and aggravated misdemeanor charge when he heads back to court again at the end of the month.
