A former Little Chute High School teacher is facing a trial on charges he repeatedly sexually assaulted a student.
Forty-six-year-old Jason LaVigne was in Outagamie County court this morning for a preliminary hearing.
Prosecutors say he would rub up against a girl in class, in 1999, when she was a 14-year-old freshman.
The district learned about the case in 2009, because the girl reached out to a school counselor. The district investigated and released a statement, saying it wasn’t able to substantiate any evidence of wrongdoing at that time.
LaVigne is also accused of assaulting a 16-year-old girl in Marinette County, while they were boating in June. He was already ordered to stand trial in that case on a felony charge of third-degree sexual assault.
