The former industrial arts teacher at a Putnam County school will have to pay more than $750,000 to the person he sexually abused. The Lima News reports the victim filed the lawsuit against 56-year-old Jeffery Perry earlier this year. Perry formerly worked in the Continental School District.
Perry is currently serving time in a federal prison on child pornography charges. He’ll eventually be transferred to an Ohio correctional facility to serve the remainder of a 75-year sentence for rape.
The crimes happened between 1995 and 2011. The victim in the case was between 6 and 14 at the time.
