Accused teacher in Taunton faces firing
Is held without bail after hearing
The Taunton publics schools will move to fire a high school teacher accused of having sex with two 14-year-old students, Superintendent Julie Hackett said Tuesday. Hackett placed the teacher, 33-year-old Patrick R. Doyle, on paid administrative leave on June 7 after allegations of sexual misconduct surfaced. Doyle appeared briefly in Taunton District Court on Tuesday, at a dangerousness hearing in which Judge Paul McCallum granted more time to the teacher’s attorney to prepare an argument for his client's release.
