BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - Two former Delano High School employees were sentenced Thursday, one for having a sexual relationship with a student and the other for helping hide that relationship.
Bobby Scott Perigo was sentenced to 16 months in prison and will have to register as a sex offender after pleading guilty to one county of unlawful sexual intercourse.
Juan Brito pleaded no contest to being an accessory and was sentenced to three years felony probation.
"It's a significant sentence that involves prison time, involves sex offender registration so I think the community will be better protected, I think that he was held accountable for his actions and what he did do and as an adult he must be responsible for them," Deputy District Attorney John Allen said.
The woman Perigo had a relationship with is now 18 and appeared in court to ask the judge to drop the criminal protective order preventing Perigo from seeing her, stating she loves Perigo.
Judge Charles Brehmer agreed, and dropped the protective order, meaning Perigo and the woman are free to see each other after he is released from prison.
