UPDATE: Former Leslie HS teacher sentenced for sex crime with student

UPDATE (11:10 a.m.) – Former Leslie High School teacher David Hovarter has been sentenced to up to 15 years in prison for sexually assaulting a teenaged student.

Hovarter had made a plea deal prior to the sentencing.

He will be in prison for at least seven years with no possibility of early parole.

LANSING, Mich (WLNS) – A former Leslie high school teacher and cross-country coach who pleaded guilty to Criminal Sexual Conduct involving a student is scheduled to learn his fate today.

And, although 47-year-old David Hovarter took a plea deal, there wasn’t a sentencing agreement.

He’s accused of having sexual contact with a Leslie high school student who was between 13 and 15 years old.

Prosecutors say Hovarter used his status in the district to get close to the victim.

He’s scheduled to be sentenced this morning and this story will be updated when that happens.
