Teacher Convicted Of Molesting Attempt

Tue., May 7, 1996

A former English teacher at exclusive Phillips Academy was convicted Monday of trying to molest a 12-year-old boy and possessing and exhibiting hundreds of child-porn photos.

A jury deliberated 9-1/2 hours over two days before convicting 59-year-old David Cobb, who was fired by the prep school in Andover, Mass., after his arrest last summer.

Judge Joseph Nadeau revoked Cobb’s bail and set sentencing for June 12. The prosecutor asked for a psychological evaluation to support his request for longer-than-usual sentences. Cobb could be sentenced to hundreds of years in prison.
