He showed little emotion as he acknowledged assaulting Lawrence Jenkens when Jenkens visited the school as a 14-year-old in 1973.
(AP) — More than 40 years after he sexually assaulted a prospective student at the prestigious Phillips Exeter prep school, a former admissions officer has pleaded guilty to the charge but will serve no jail time. William Delker on Friday approved a plea agreement for 75-year-old Arthur Peekel, a former Illinois high school Teacher of the Year, whose 12-month sentence was suspended."While I believe that there is some satisfaction to sending someone like you who committed a crime like this to jail, no amount of jail time is going to right the wrong you committed in this case," the judge told the court, adding that he hoped the guilty plea and sentence would change the culture and show that this "kind of conduct, no matter how long ago it occurred, will come back to roost."Peekel also has to pay a fine of $1,200 and register as a sex offender for the next decade.
