Teacher convicted of having sex with students forced to pay $150,000

A Superior Court judge has ordered Mark Baggio, the former Catholic high school teacher convicted of having sex with his underage students, to pay $150,000 in an ongoing civil lawsuit.

The decision nearly brings to a close the lengthy suit that started in 2008 when Baggio was convicted of sexual assault, sexual exploitation and corrupting a child with his former student who was just 14 back in 2002.

With interest, Justice Thomas Carey’s decision will cost Baggio $228,000.

Baggio, who was a guidance counsellor, religion teacher and popular coach at F.J. Brennan high school, was also convicted of the same crimes related to a second student. She also sued and has settled out of court for an undisclosed sum.  (more...)

A little circumspection may be in order:
