Hamlin , Lincoln County , West Virginia
A former high school teacher in Lincoln County was back in court on Thursday, ten years after being convicted of molesting students.
The case of Philip Duvall, once had the county up in arms. He was once employed as a gym teacher at Duval High School. He was convicted on child porn, and sexual assault charges years ago relating to inappropriate relationships he had with students.
He's been in federal prison in Kentucky for the last ten years, but was recently sent back to West Virginia to face sentencing on state charges.
He was supposed to re sentenced on Thursday, but the hearing turned into more of a procedural hearing, allowing both sides to gather documents, and allow time for Duvall to undergo testing and a sexual offender evaluation.
One of the victims, now an adult, was in the courtroom and visibly emotional at having to see Duvall again.
He will be back in court next month to continue the state sentencing process.
