Former Teacher Sex Sentence 05 Oct 13

A former teacher at a boarding school in southern Minnesota has been sentenced to more than four years in prison for sexually abusing six male students more than a decade ago. Lynn Seibel pleaded guilty to seven counts in July, more than a year after police began investigating alleged sexual contact with students at Shattuck-St. Mary’s School in Faribault. He was sentenced to 52 months in prison Friday and will get credit for time served. The 71-year-old will then be on probation, likely for the rest of his life. Seibel taught drama at the school from 1992 to 2003 and lived in one of the dormitories. He left after child pornography was found on his computer, and was working as an actor in California before his arrest last year. His best-known performance as an actor was as the “Naked Teacher” in the television show “The Big Bang Theory.”
