An ex-private school teacher in Wisconsin, 74-year-old Anne N. Nelson-Koch was recently convicted and is facing 600 years behind bars after being charged with sexually assaulting a teen student. On Monday, the elderly woman was found guilty on all counts, which derived from her consistent assaults on one of her students, a 14-year-old boy, the New York Post.

The former teacher reportedly sexually assaulted the boy in the basement of the private school multiple times between the 2016-2017 school period. At the time of the incident, the woman was 67 while the boy was merely age 14.  The deliberation was made after a three-day trial, during which she was declared guilty. 

Sarah M. Skiles Assistant District Attorney said,

“The victim of these crimes is an incredibly brave young man… He spoke the truth, and the jury heard him loud and clear. We are so grateful to the jury for their dedication to finding the truth.”

Skiles requested for the woman to remain in jail until the sentencing; however, the judge allowed her to roam free with a GPS monitor until she is sentenced on Oct. 27. The  74-year-old currently faces up to 600 years.
