Judge clears Huntley teacher of theft
WOODSTOCK – A Huntley special-education teacher and cheerleading coach was acquitted Wednesday on charges of stealing a student’s cellphone and iPod.
Kimberlee L. Hoffman, 43, was charged with theft, a misdemeanor. After a bench trial, in which a judge determines the verdict rather than a jury at the defendant’s request, McHenry County Judge Charles P. Weech found her not guilty.
The student testified she left her iPod Touch and Motorola Atrix cellphone in a bathroom stall at Huntley High School on Sept. 5. She said she saw Hoffman enter the stall, realized that she had forgotten the items and saw Hoffman leave. The student said she didn’t stop Hoffman and ask for her things back.
