Laura Waxmann at the SF Examiner reports:

A former John O’Connell High School physical education teacher and soccer coach retired this summer with a full pension despite allegations of sexual assault by some 30 female students and reports of his inappropriate behavior made to the school’s administrators two years ago.

Bob Gamino, who has been employed with the San Francisco Unified School District since 1994 and has no prior complaints filed against him, was placed on administrative leave in May after a female student accused him of sexual assault that she alleges spanned the entire school year.

Gamino’s administrative leave was pending the outcome of an internal investigation launched by the school district thereafter, according to SFUSD spokesperson Gentle Blythe. READ MORE
