The Illinois Supreme Court ruled a school district that suspended a teacher because of allegations of sexual misconduct had a duty to warn another district where the teacher later found work.
Jon White was twice suspended from his teaching job in Normal. But the McLean County school district did not disclose that when the Urbana schools asked to verify White's employment.
White was eventually convicted of abusing eight girls in Urbana and two in Normal. He will spend most of the next 30 years in prison.
