Music Teacher Arrested For Sexually Assaulting Student
Via NY Daily News reports:
A Washington state music teacher convinced a teenage student to strip naked and touch herself, saying it would improve her vocal range, a recently filed lawsuit claims
Kevin Gausepohl, 38, allegedly told the 17-year-old that her vocal ability would dramatically improve if she followed his perverted instructions.
He is also accused of masturbating during one session while she played piano.
Gausepohl was arrested over the sexual manipulation of the girl at Tacoma Community College in 2011.
He eventually appeared in Tacoma Municipal Court, charged with seven misdemeanor counts of communicating with a minor for immoral purposes. But he reached a plea deal with prosecutors, who agreed to drop the allegations if he kept out of trouble for 12 months.
He kept his side of the bargain, and prosecutors dismissed the case earlier this month, The Bellingham Herald reported.
But his alleged Gig Harbor victim is now suing him, the school and the state of Washington for not doing enough to protect her.
The suit, filed on her behalf by attorney Lance Hester, seeks unspecified damages.
At 17 you’d think she’d be smart enough, to not be so damn stupid. Hope they put him in prison, it’s where he belongs.
