Kason O'Neil Sentenced; Jail Time Stayed

Updated:

Kason O'Neil, the Hudson Falls High School teacher convicted of sexual abuse, has been sentenced to two 60 day terms in jail which will be served concurrently.

O'Neil's sentence, however, has been stayed for 120 days at the request of his attorney to allow time for an appeal of the conviction. He is free on bail and will not serve jail time during this period.

Kason O'Neil was found guilty last month on charges related to an accusation that he had an innapropriate relationship with a student between 2005 and 2007.

O'Neil was found guilty in September after a nearly three week trial.
