Former teacher/coach Christian Willman has been accused of sexually assaulting at least 4 students at Parkland High School in Allentown.
Update: Christian Willman Pleads Guilty, Sentenced to 6-12 Years in Prison
In January 2020, former Palisades High School and Parkland High School teacher and coach Christian Willman was sentenced to 6-12 years in state prison after pleading guilty to sexually abusing four students at Parkland High School and two students at Palisades High School. This sentence was part of a plea deal that spared the victims from testifying against Willman. He was sentenced to 1-2 years for each of the six victims.
He pleaded guilty to several charges, including sexual assault, criminal solicitation by a sports official, criminal use of a communication facility, illegal photographing of a minor child, and corruption of minors.
Willman will also be required to register as a sex offender under Megan’s Law for 25 years following his release from prison and is banned from teaching or coaching ever again.
