    Looks like Larry David Twigg turned up in Cedarville, Ohio ...

    News report on Friday Oct. 5:

    WHIO TV: Police: Ex-teacher sex offender did not register

    A former Iowa teacher whose conviction for lacivious acts with a male student was reversed last month, was arrested in Cedarville, Ohio Thursday night. Larry Twigg, 55, was booked and then released Friday from the Greene County Jail on felony charges of failure to register as a sex offender in the county. News Center 7 reported last November that local U.S. Marshals began surveillance on Twigg after learning he’d left Iowa and was living in a home on Creamer Drive in Cedarville. Twigg was convicted in 2011in Black Hawk County, Iowa on five counts of lacivious acts with a minor ... Twigg was not jailed in Iowa while his case was being appealed. In August, Twigg won his appeal, and the Iowa Court of Appeals remanded the case for a new trial. The appellate court said the district court abused its discretion by admitting testimony of another former student who testified to prior bad acts. A Xenia Municipal Court judge released Twigg from jail Friday afternoon on his own recognizance.

    My two cents worth: If his conviction was reversed on appeal, does that not void any requirement to register as a sex offender? He's now back in the "innocent until proven guilty" state. The Iowa prosecutor get to start over from square one.

    Waterloo Cedar Falls Courier: UPDATE: Twigg convicted; morecharges filed against him (May 24 2013)

    Former Waterloo teacher Larry Twigg was found guilty of five counts of misdemeanor lascivious conduct with a minor Friday afternoon in Black Hawk County. The jury ruled Twigg was guilty of spanking a 17-year-old student and having him create snow angels. He also made the student take a chocolate syrup shower in his boxer shorts.​


    As Twigg, a former West High computer instructor who has been free on bond, left the courtroom following the verdict Friday afternoon, Waterloo police arrested him on new charges connected to allegations involving another student. The new charges are two counts of sexual exploitation by a school employee. They stem from incidents between fall 2008 and summer 2009. One of the charges is a misdemeanor for an incident that allegedly occurred. The other charge is a felony alleging Twigg engaged a pattern of conduct.​
