Former teacher, coach sentenced after being arrested in internet sex sting
GREEN BAY (WLUK) -- A former Seymour teacher convicted after he went to meet what he was thought was a 15-year-old for sex was sentenced Friday to six months in jail.
Nicholas Darnick, 35, was also placed on probation for four years by Judge Marc Hammer for the four misdemeanor counts.
If he successfully completes probation, the pending felony count of child enticement would be dropped. The conditions for that include: not taking a job as a teacher, not renewing his teaching license, and taking any coaching positions.
Darnick chatted online with who he thought was a teenage girl but was actually police officers. Even though the chat included messages “she” was 15, Darnick arranged a meeting with her. When he arrived, police arrested him.
Darnick taught in Seymour and coached girls basketball.
