BRIDGEPORT - Caught masturbating a male student in the classroom, a former Harding High School substitute teacher told a judge Friday he just wants to go home to Jamaica.
“All I want to do is put this behind me and go back to Jamaica,” Robert Seaga-Johnson told Superior Court Judge William Holden.
But first Seaga-Johnson is going to have to serve a 45-day prison term.
Police said the 43-year-old former teacher masturbated the 17-year-old student on a number of occasions in his classroom in exchange for giving the student high grades and allowing him to “cheat” on tests.
