Twigg found guilty of inappropriate behavior


A former Waterloo teacher was found guilty of inappropriate behavior with a student.

Larry Twigg, a former computer science teacher at West High, was found guilty on all five counts of lascivious contact with a minor. It took the jury less than a day to reach its' verdict.

The charges came from two different encounters where Twigg invited a 17-year-old male to his home, once in December of 2009 and then again in January of 2010.

The student testified that Twigg had him remove clothing while playing video games, shower in chocolate syrup, and also strip down to his boxers and make snow angels out in his yard.

The defense tried to prove that there acts were not sexual in nature.

Once the allegation came to light, Twigg was fired from his teaching job at West High.

Lascivious acts with a minor is only considered a misdemeanor and carries a sentence of up to one year in prison.

Sentencing for Twigg will be scheduled at a later date.
