Marshall teacher sentenced for having sex with a student


MARSHALL (WKZO) -- A former Marshall Teacher has been given 28 months to 15 years in prison for having sex with a 17-year-old student at the Marshall Academy where he taught and she attended classes.33-year-old Michael Hagedorn apparently had a long relationship with the girl and had been warned it was inappropriate before anyone knew that sex was involved. Judge Conrad Sindt said he was concerned about that and that Hagedorn had used his position of authority to manipulate the teen.

Hagedorn cut a deal with prosecutors and pled guilty to a 3rd degree CSC charge in exchange for having other charges dropped.

This effectively ends his teaching career and his name will be added to the sex-offender registry.
