A 74-year-old former teacher in Wisconsin was found guilty of repeatedly sexually assaulting a teenage student and is now facing more than 600 years in prison.
Anne N. Nelson-Koch was convicted by a Monroe County jury on the 25 counts against her for sexually assaulting a 14-year-old male student in the basement of a private school in Tomah during the 2016-2017 school year, Monroe County District Attorney Kevin Croninger said in a July 31 press release.
The jury deliberated for five hours before returning a guilty verdict.
“The victim of these crimes is an incredibly brave young man,” Assistant District Attorney Sarah M. Skiles wrote. “He spoke the truth, and the jury heard him loud and clear. We are so grateful to the jury for their dedication to finding the truth.”
Skiles asked Monroe County Circuit Court Judge Richard Radcliffe to revoke Nelson-Koch’s bond and remand her to custody pending sentencing, but the judge released Nelson-Koch on GPS monitoring until her Oct. 27 sentencing hearing.
She looks guilty. Lock her up.
