Suspect in Marinette County Sexual Assault Sentenced on Similar Charge in Outagamie County
06/27/2019- A former Little Chute teacher will serve 5 years in prison for the sexual assault of a student twenty years ago. A judge handed down the prison sentence, followed by 11 years of extended supervision, to 46-year-old Jason Lavigne this week after a jury found him guilty of Repeated Sexual Assault of the Same Child in April. The victim came forward in 2009 with allegations that Lavigne had inappropriate contact with her when she was a freshman at Little Chute High School. Officials in Outagamie County were tipped off about the case from investigators in Marinette County who obtained his personnel file after he was accused of sexually assaulting a teen while on a trip to a cabin in the Town of Stephenson last summer. Lavigne is charged with 3rd Degree Sexual Assault in that matter, which is set to go to trial in September.
