A one time “Teacher of the Year” resigns after admitting he tried to meet, what he thought was a 13-year old girl, for sex.
Robert Fickenscher, 58, plead guilty to one count of criminal attempted unlawful contact with a minor and one count of criminal use of a computer in Allegheny County Common Pleas Court in Pennsylvania.
A woman, who later identified herself as the former teacher’s wife told Fox 8 the family’s attorney advised them not to comment about the case.
“Leave the guy alone,” the woman said. “We’ve been advised not to say anything because it gets twisted, the truth is twisted, leave it alone, leave it alone.”
Fickenscher, a chemistry teacher at Madison High School in Lake County turned in his resignation Monday after pleading guilty to the charges.
