Ex-York Tech Teacher Convicted of Sexually Assaulting 2 Students
A former teacher at the York County School of Technology will spend a year in prison after he was convicted in July of groping two students at the school in 2016. 44-year-old Kevin Nagle was sentenced in York County Court on Monday, October 1 to one year minus two days to two years minus two days in York County Prison, plus three years of probation upon his release. He also much register with state police as a sex offender for 15 years under Pennsylvania’s Megan’s Law.
Presiding Common Pleas Judge Maria Musti Cook make the ruling and ordered Nagle to report to prison on Thursday, October 4.
Although Nagle was only convicted of assaulting two students, jurors heard from a third student who made similar allegations against the teacher. The students allege that Nagle groped them while ostensibly measuring them for pants at the school store.
Additionally, prosecutor Teresa Jauregi reminded the judge that a fourth victim had also come forward with allegations of abuse against Nagle. However, the fourth victim was not permitted to testify.
On July 20, jurors deliberated for roughly two hours before finding Nagle guilty of two counts each of institutional sexual assault and corruption of minors, along with one count of indecent assault.
During the trial, two school administrators testified that Nagle was specifically told not to touch students, not to measure or fit students for clothing, and to allow students to buy whatever sizes they chose in October 2016. However, nothing was introduced at trial to elaborate on why Nagle was told not to do these things.
