OSSINING, N.Y. -- The former Ossining High School teacher who was arrested and charged with sexual offenses on what was supposed to be his wedding day, was sentenced to 10 years on sex-offender probation Tuesday, according to a LoHud report.
John Azabache pleaded guilty in September to felony third-degree rape in September. Judge Susan Cacace ordered Azabache, a Port Chester resident, to spend 10 years on sex-offender probation and that he register as a sex offender, according to the LoHud report.
Azabache was previously charged with two counts of third-degree rape, a felony punishable by up to four years in prison, according to LoHud. His wedding was called off after news of the arrest and charges.
The girl was an Ossining High School student who could not legally consent because she was underage. The girl's parents reported the allegations to police in July.
