Plea Agreement Reached For Amador High School Teacher

Plea Agreement Reached For Amador High School Teacher 

An Amador High School teacher charged in a drunken confrontation with students last year has reached a plea agreement in Amador Superior Court. In court Thursday afternoon Marc Yonan plead no contest to a pair of misdemeanor charges of battery on school grounds and possessing alcohol on school grounds, as part of a plea deal reached with the Amador County DA’s office. Three misdemeanor charges, including child abuse were dropped. Yonan was sentenced to 3 years supervised probation, will serve no jail time and will be required to attend an alcohol treatment program and an anger management class. Yonan was convicted for an October 7th incident, in which while intoxicated, he threw a glass beaker at students, hitting one in the arm, and chasing students from the classroom before being arrested by the Sutter Creek Police Department. One of the student victims in the case was present in court, and victim impact statements from the student and her mother were read to the court. They both described the incident and its emotional impact on the student and urged Yonan to get the help he needed. The victim’s support of the plea agreement was a key factor in moving forward with the deal. Yonan will also be barred from approaching the victims in the case or the Amador High School grounds as part of the plea agreement.
