Verdict in teacher-teen sex case upheld

Jon Jungkind. (Michigan Department of Corrections -- Dec. 19, 2012)

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — The Michigan Court of Appeals has upheld the conviction and sentence of a former Cedar Springs teacher who had a sexual relationship with a student.

Jon Jungkind’s relationship with the girl led her to getting pregnant, and him buying her a medication to help her have an abortion.

Jungkind was sentenced to between 40 months and 15 years in prison after being found guilty of third-degree criminal sexual conduct.

He argued testimony about the abortion should not have been admitted. He also argued against the way his sentence was calculated.

The Court of Appeals disagreed and upheld both the verdict and sentence.
