    NBC News: Sex Abuse Suspect Has Past Conviction (Oct 29 2013)

    On March 29, 1993, Totsch abruptly resigned and was placed on an immediate paid medical leave. Six months later, the Ohio Board of Education revoked Totsch's teaching certificate. The reason: according to the board's letter, Totsch was convicted of sexual imposition involving a minor. NBC4 checked Coshocton court records and discovered Totsch's record was expunged in 1985. NBC4 also checked with the River View Local School District, and discovered a letter from the Coshocton County Prosecutor's Office confirming Totsch's conviction. Also in the school's file: newspaper articles from the Coshocton Tribune documenting an alleged sexual relationship with a 15-year-old student between 1992 and 1993.
