CRANSTON, R.I. (WLNE) — A former Cranston middle school teacher has been convicted of sexually assaulting a teenager.
48-year-old Matthew Sheridan was found guilty of first degree assault.
Prosecutors say the former science teacher at Western Hills Middle School assaulted a 15-year-old from 2003 to 2004.
“It’s a scary world to think that where your kids are they’re not safe. You’d think that school is a perfect place to be safe and to do well,” said parent, Stephanie Mendez.
Sheridan was first charged in 2016. He is due back in court next month.
