Sex offender OK'd to teach despite conviction

Augusta, Maine-AP) _ The man who headed up Maine's efforts to teach English to non-native speakers received his Maine teaching certificate despite a conviction for molesting a child in Connecticut.
Bernard "Barney" Berube of Augusta was sentenced a week ago in Massachusetts for molesting two boys at a summer camp 30 years ago.
A year after the camp incidents, Berube was arrested in Norwalk, Connecticut, after a woman reported that he had sexually molested her 9-year-old son. Berube, then 29, and living in Westport, pleaded no contest to sexual assault and was ordered to resign as a teacher, leave the state and seek medical help. .........................
