Former Fontainebleau High School Coach Pleads Guilty to Molesting Student

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

June 21, 2017

COVINGTON—District Attorney Warren Montgomery reports that William L. Leto, 38, of Bush, a former math teacher and assistant girls’ basketball coach at Fontainebleau High School in Mandeville, pleaded guilty Monday (June 19) to molestation of a juvenile by a teacher.

District Judge Richard Swartz, Jr., sentenced Leto to five years in prison without the benefit of probation, parole, or suspension of sentence. Upon release, Leto must register as a sex offender for 25 years.

The St. Tammany Parish Sheriff’s Office received an anonymous tip last year that Leto was having an inappropriate relationship with a 16-year-old student. An investigation determined that Leto’s contact with the student began on social media and turned sexual.

Assistant District Attorney John Alford prosecuted the case.
