WATERLOO — The trial of a former Waterloo teacher charged with lascivious conduct with a student will remain in Black Hawk County.
A judge on Thursday rejected Larry David Twigg's request to move his second trial out of Waterloo because of pretrial publicity.
Twigg, 55, was a Waterloo West High School computer teacher before he was convicted in 2011 of five counts of lascivious conduct toward a minor. Last year, the Iowa Court of Appeals ordered a new trial, saying jurors shouldn't have heard about alleged prior incidents.
Twigg said his actions — which included having the student make up missed assignments by participating in bizarre activities while in his boxers — weren't sexually motivated. — AP
