INDIANAPOLIS - A former teacher at the Indiana School for the Blind and Visually Impaired was sentenced after pleading guilty to a charge of sexual misconduct with a minor after allegedly having sex with a student.
Al Lovati, 61 was sentenced to a total of six years -- two years in the Indiana Department of Correction and four years of probation -- Friday morning.
Lovati agreed to plead guilty under a plea deal. Lovati had been charged with official misconduct, sexual misconduct with a minor and child seduction, but under the plea deal, only one sexual misconduct charge remained.
Lovati was fired from the school last year after a female student, either 14 or 15 years old, said they had sex multiple times at the school. The incidents allegedly occurred between August 2012 and March 2013, court documents said.
