Kason O'Neil
Kason O'Neil Kason M. O'Neil, 26, a physical education teacher and track coach at Hudson Falls High School in Hudson Falls, New York was arrested on allegations that he had a sexual relationship with a 14-year-old female student in 2005 and 2006. Jurors in the recent trial of a local coach and teacher voted 11-1 in favor of convicting him of all charges at numerous points during deliberations last week, a juror said Tuesday night. The juror, a Greenwich-area man who spoke on condition of anonymity because he was concerned about public sentiment toward the jurors in the high-profile case, said the panel twice had 11 jurors in favor of convicting Kason M. O'Neil on all charges. The lone holdout was a woman on the panel who did not believe O'Neil was guilty, the man said. The jury was made up of nine men and three women. "At one point, I wasn't very far behind here," he said. "We all compromised. It ended up being he was slightly guilty." The jury acquitted O'Neil of 12 of 14 charges, including nine felonies, in connection with allegations he had sex with a student who was 14 and 15 years old between 2005 and 2007. The girl also ran on the Hudson Falls High track team he coached.
