Child-Rape Charges For Retired Teacher

Child-Rape Charges For Retired Teacher

ELIZABETH – A former public school teacher who has been sued by two former students who claimed he raped them as children, was arrested Tuesday and is now facing criminal charges for the first time.

The criminal case against Robert Goodlin, 75, was announced Wednesday, months after the city Board of Education agreed to pay $600,000 to settle a lawsuit by a former student. Goodlin and the district are facing another lawsuit by a second student who came forward after the first lawsuit made headlines. The attorney representing the now-adult plaintiffs says even more victims may come forward.
