Larry David Twigg wants student chocolate-syrup shower charges dropped
Larry David Twigg had an unusual assignment for the 17-year-old boy from West High School in Waterloo: Come on over to the house, take your clothes off and have a chocolate syrup shower.
The boy completed the homework. But Twigg, a 53-year-old former computer teacher, was charged with six counts of lascivious conduct with a minor.
Now he wants the charges dropped.
Twigg was satisfying his weird sexual cravings with the student for a few months, according to Waterloo PD. He was arrested this time last year, and lost a job a short time later.
But Twigg's attorney now says a mental health evaluation showed his client didn't intend to commit a crime, and that a psychiatrist hired by the state will testify that Twigg's acts weren't sexually motivated.
He's not claiming the chocolate syrup showers didn't happen. So maybe Twigg was just angling for desert.
