Milford Daily News

CAMBRIDGE -- Allegations from at least 12 previous victims bolster the rape and indecent assault case against Maynard High School teacher Joseph Magno, said Assistant District Attorney Michael Chinman at Magno’s arraignment yesterday.

Magno, 65, of Hudson pleaded not guilty in Middlesex Superior Court, and shook his head slightly in response to charges of 18 counts of rape and indecent assault relating to a single male student. ...

Magno cited the priest sexual abuse scandal in the Catholic Church and wrote "your son will always be safe in my presence...Parents have always put total trust in me."
