WORCESTER, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio) — Worcester County D.A.Joseph Early Jr. says a former teacher at Auburn Elementary school has been found guilty of raping a student multiple times.

The charges against 66 year-old Stephen Jaszek stem from assaults more than a decade ago. The former music teacher is accused of raping a fifth grader while she was his student in 2009 and 2010, and D.A. Early's office says the assaults took place "on school grounds in a classroom."

After a three day jury-waived trial, Worcester Superior Court Judge William Ritter declared Jaszek guilty on all charges: two counts of aggravated rape of a child by a mandated reporter, two counts of aggravated rape of a child, and one count of aggravated rape of a child under the age of 14 by a mandated reporter.

Jaszek is expected to face sentencing on May 20th.
