Categories: 

Two former teachers in Lackawanna County have been sentenced for each having a sexual relationship with the same teenager.

Nick and Ruth Baggetta were convicted in June of having a sexual relationship with a 16-year-old girl.

Nick Baggetta was sentenced to four and a half to nine years in prison plus probation.
Ruth Baggetta was sentenced to two and a half to six years plus probation.

The couple was found guilty in June of 2019 of charges including institutional sexual assault.

The charges stemmed from a nearly two-year sexual relationship the Baggettas had with a 16-year-old girl.

At the time, Nick Bagetta was a teacher at Fell Charter School near Carbondale and Ruth was band director at Lakeland High School.

The couple was sent to prison following the sentencing hearing in Lackawanna County.
