MARINETTE — A former Little Chute, Wisconsin, teacher accused of sexually assaulting a 16-year-old girl in the Crivitz area will go to trial this fall in Marinette County.

Marinette Circuit Judge Jim Morrison Monday set the trial of Jason H. LaVigne, 46, Appleton, for Sept. 17-20 in Branch 1. A pretrial hearing is set for 3:30 p.m. Aug. 23.

LaVigne is charged with third degree sexual assault. The alleged incident happened on June 2, 2018, at a family cabin in the Town of Stephenson. He gave the victim alcohol before assaulting her on a pontoon boat, according the criminal complaint. The alleged victim is a friend of LaVigne’s daughter.

If convicted, he faces 10 years in prison and/or a fine of $25,000.

LaVigne was convicted in a jury trial last month in Outagamie County of repeated sexual assault of the same child. The victim was age 14 and a student in one of his classes 20 years ago.. He will be sentenced for that crime June 25. His attorney in that case was Frank Stupak of Escanaba, Michigan. 

Stupak was the original attorney in the Marinette case and the trial was scheduled this month. LaVigne changed attorneys so the trial was rescheduled to September. LaVigne is now represented by Kevin Musolf of Appleton.

Assistant District Attorney Cody Marschall is handling the case for Marinette County.
