Ex-Marlborough School Teacher Arrested for Felony Sex Assault on Former Student


Vanity Fair

The arrest this week of ex-Marlborough School teacher, Joseph Koetters, for felony sex assault of one of his former Marlborough students, adds a new twist to the already shocking allegations against the former teacher. According to the Los Angeles Times, in 2000 Koetters impregnated one of his students, a 16 year-old, who subsequently had a miscarriage. Vanity Fair’s article adds more details, including an interview with “Holly”, Koetter’s 16 year-old victim.  Koetters left the school in 2013 to work at Polytechnic in Pasadena (he’s no longer there). His arrest could not have come soon enough!
