John Austin Hopkins, former gym teacher at Clearcreek Elementary School, is said to have had "physical contact" with 88 first grade girls.

He was only charged with 34 out of 36 counts of gross sexual imposition relating to 28 of those cases. Those 28 cases involved what the jury defined as sexual contact, all of which was caught on surveillance.

His lawyers begged for a low sentence because he is autistic and has no prior record.

He was sentenced to 8 years in prison (out of the maximum 170 possible).

Help us maximize his sentence so that these children never have to face their abuser again.
