TEACHER GETS 2 TO 4 YEARS
Thomas Savastano, a third grade teacher at Helen B. Duffield Elementary School was convicted of molesting a former student. The victim's mother told a Suffolk Court judge that Savastano should be sent to prison so he can't molest other little girls. She said, He is not only a pedophile, he is a master of manipulation, he duped his colleagues, it is no wonder he could dupe a child. The Connectquot teacher was sentenced to an upstate prison for 2 to 4 years. He was convicted in July of fondling the girl's buttocks in his classroom.
